Find a spider by...
webs and egg sacs
female: 5 mm|
male: unknown; probably less than 5 mm
Uncertain but probably on green leaves of shrubs in Australian bush settings
Too small to be hazardous to humans
Little is known about the natural history of this species because it is so rarely found in the field, the male never having been collected. Corynethrix obscura is known
to be present in localities in Queensland and NSW and it is likely that a number of specimens have been collected but misidentified as the more common
thomisid species, Bomis larvata. Corynethrix and Bomis are similar in size and overall body shape but differ in that Bomis lacks the distinctive abdominal
folds that characterize Corynethrix and there are also some less obvious differences in body and leg surfaces.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Bomis larvata.
