Thank you Matthew Connors for identifying this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Riverland and elsewhere
Because of the
1. Eye brow
2. Spotted under legs
3. Badge is too strong
we thought this was a Badge huntsman.
Interestingly, the Sternum is hairy! Quite unusual.
But the long thin legs always concerned us.
The male here soon woke up and tried to jump on us
These have hairy pads on their feet and can easily walk up glass.
