Description

Small green and white spider (about 9mm body) settled into a fold on acacia leaves (A dealbata?) Distinctive spiky 'shoulders'. It seems this one might be undescribed.. David Akers, Reiner Richter and Nick Monaghan have posted it on BowerBird and elsewhere. Nick might have it wrongly named it with Araneus psittacinus complex. http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/102135 http://www.bowerbird.org.au/observations/102132 Araneidae anyway...

    "Thanks David. Just found Linda Rogan's too. Almost always on A.dealbata and all from southern Victoria."

    "A very distinctive and apparently not uncommon spider, Mark. I'm surprised that it appears not to have a name yet."
