Thank you Mark Newton for identifying this species for us

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee), and elsewhere
Very difficult to be certain of species, with out proper examination (as with many of the spiders here).
This genus is unusual for a spider in that the male & female are the same size. Mark indicates the larger palps imply the adult here is a male.
