Hi,

As you can see from the picture above, there are no plack dots on its 'back' (either the body or the abdomen). To identify your spider please enter your enquiry via our scientific enquiries page; http://australianmuseum.net.au/Contact/General

Thanks,

Chris

does this spider have two black dots on it's back and a black mark underneath? If so we had one in our laundry room last night.
