Blue Mountain funnel-Web spider (Hadronycha versuta) This spider ( female) looks almost 100% like the Sydney funnel-web spider ( Atrax robustes)<br />
Except that it did not have a silk lined barrow into the soil but was dig into a decaying log. Also in one photo the thorax breast plate is a more reddish brown.
