I am quite confident for genus-level ID to be Tharpyna sp. For further ID, it appears to match the white patterning on the abdomen and the colouration of the legs of images in the references and links provided on the species page for T. diademata. I'm otherwise happy to stick to Tharpyna sp without confirming to a species level given the lack of revisions for Australian Thomisidae or for corrections/suggestions of other genus
