    Wild exuviae Hadronyche cerberea

    First day of the New year I went down to the Southern Highlands of NSW and checked out a new area. I found my first ever natural evidence of the Southern Tree Funnel-web (Hadronyche cerberea) - a few discarded burrows with some old web and this exuviae about 1.5 metres up a tree. Next time?

    H. versuta sex revisited

    Following "Scratchy's" trip down to Melbourne for a mating expedition. I decided to house the two remaining adult females that I collected at the same time. I held off on the housing because one of the females had molted. She molted into a male of the species. I present "Itchy" the male H. versuta.

    One of the three adult Blue Mountains funnel-webs (H. versuta; 1 male, 2 females) that I collected from the Southern Highlands of NSW during the week has decided to present a molt in her temporary housing. I guess I'll have to wait a little while to place her in something more permanent.
