Clubiona robusta (JS) |
or a related species
female: 13 mm|
male: 10 mm
Under loose bark, frequently in a silken brood chamber (like that of miturgid species) if female
Uncertain; may cause mild illness in humans
This is considered to be the most common clubiona species in Australia. Useful identifying features of this spider are the large
chelicerae (forwards-pointing in males) and the fact that the chelicerae and
carapace are dark at the front but the latter becomes progressively lighter towards the rear.
The abdomen typically has a pattern of dark dorsal chevron-like markings.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Cheiracanthium species and Ariadna species.
