Description

Will somebody pull this wetsuit off please?
About 12mm body length this spider is trying to shed an old skin with only the legs yet to be extricated. Pic 2 is correct orientation so gravity may be an important factor. Also interesting is the two retaining lines; one from the original abdomen and one from the new. Did the abdomen come out first and place another line before proceeding?
On eucalyptus branches in a local nature reserve. Gilmour Park.

(need to add ' Deliochus pulcher ')
