Description

These spiders were found under pine wooden disks placed in the reserve for the purpose of monitoring invertebrates. We have noted spiders up to 25mm length. The tunnel webs suggest they are Hexathele? If so, these are very uncommon in the South Island, being found only on Bank Peninsula and Hoods Bush near Glentunnel. Note: this work was done under DOC permit.
