The Badge Huntsman is widespread across all of Australia in woodland and dry to moist eucalypt forest, less common in the tropical north and the arid areas. It is a large spider, active at night, hunting for prey on tree trunks or on foliage. It has a daytime retreat, sometimes made from leaves woven together, occasionally under bark. The female is fawn to orange to pinkish brown. There is a distinctive black shield with two white spots on the underside of abdomen, usually with an orange stripe.. more
