Hi Michael, I don’t have much experience IDing spiders and discounted O.sexmaculatus because it didn’t seem to have the significant reddy/purple patch on its head. I assume the abdominal markings or more important indicators?

Simone - I also don't have a lot of expertise re spider ID - but I think both the head and abdomen markings in this species can be variable and your image does show a dark head patch. Because I was uncertain re the ID I only made a suggestion. I am hoping that Yumi and/or Bron who share the spider moderating task will be able to enlighten us both.
