Wrap-around spider dorsal detail
A female Dolophones wrap-around spider was seen by chance recently in an urban setting. These spiders are masters of camouflage in a natural setting so in this context she was easier to see....but she did not make my task of documenting her easy as her resting place was in a really inaccessible and hard to get to place!
I hope I captured enough of her amazing dorsal detail for others to appreciate. Even better detail when enlarged. Amazing little spiders.
Dolophones is a genus of spider found primarily here in Australia and Oceania. There are 17 known and named species.
