  1. Wow, what a beauty! Nice species introduction. Posted one year ago
    1. Thank you Claire.
      Yes it is a showy spider but it knows how to hide and you don't see it often. It is also very fast.
      Love your photos and your work.

''Nicodamus peregrinus'' known as the Red and Black spider, is a common spider found in eastern and southern Australia. Unlike with the Redback Spider, the bright red coloration does not appear to warn of significant danger to humans. Food is a variety of small insects. They have been recorded in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.
