Hedana species

The spider shown above is included in Ramon Mascord's 1980 Spiders of Australia booklet and apparently has not subsequently been formally described or even photographed for placement in a more recent book or on the internet. Mascord stated it is found only in NSW but the specimen presented above was actually found in Brisbane so its range presumably is wider than Mascord believed.

Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: None.
