Description

For scale, the larger spider is running on ordinary decking timber. It ended up squeezing between decking planks. The smaller spider is about half the size of this one. There was a third, smaller individual about 1.5 mm long and with the same colouration running in precisely the same region about twenty minutes earlier but it had disappeared by the time I procured a camera.

Under the same deck is a plethora of orb webs and ground dwelling spiders. These ones were so cute!

Description

Spider was disturbed on ground when removing a few loose pieces of pine bark and dry leaf litter and it emerged from under the weedmat. The strands of the weedmat are about 2-3 mm wide.

The faint grey stripe visible in one of the photos on the abdomen was more visible in person and is a reflection of the main light source rather than a colouration of the spider.

A similar spider had been observed a couple of metres away in a cobweb near several other orb web spiders a few weeks earlier.

I think that is one of its egg sacs visible in the corner of one photo.

For some reason, in all my photos I can only make out six legs.

Description from Wikipedia

Arachnids are a class (Arachnida) of joint-legged invertebrate animals in the subphylum Chelicerata. All arachnids have eight legs, although the front pair of legs in some species has converted to a sensory function, while in other species, different appendages can grow large enough to take on the appearance of extra pairs of legs. The term is derived from the Greek word ἀράχνη (aráchnē), meaning "spider".
