Dolophones dorsal view
A unique and fascinating genus of spiders native to this country and Oceania. They are called 'wrap around spider' because they wrap very closely around a twig when at rest thanks to their concave abdomen. Their colouring and markings provide for excellent camouflage and are therefore very difficult to spot. I have only ever found two - this one was easier as I happened upon it when it was between rocks in a wall of my garden. I chose to photograph and present from this angle to showcase the wonderful markings and pattern on the dorsal abdomen.
Possibly Dolophones tuberculata? Body length 10 mm
