26 Mar 2018

Author's notes

While I was watching one spider, a second one appeared and caught two ants in rapid succession. Unfortunately I didn't see how it happened. Emertonella?

Cath, I found it as Emertonella online, but also as Euryopis splendens. Since the former doesn't appear in the Australian Faunal Directory and the latter does, I'll opt for the latter. It's a new one for CNM - excellent!
