female: 7-9 mm |
male: 9 mm

This species has unknown toxicity but a bite is unlikely to lead to more than temporary local pain and inflammation
The body shape of this spider is a good match for that of the common South Queensland species Euryattus bleekeri and matches the available internet photos of the North Queensland
species, Euryattus wallacei.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Quite a few other salticid species.
