Lynx Spider? First Encounter
Thu, Dec 11, 2008 at 8:26 PM
Hi Guys,
Found this rather lovely lady in my vegetable patch. I guess its a lynx spider but not one I’ve seen before and I can’t find a match for the colour and patterns on any of my regular reference sites. Body size 8-10mm. Hopefully someone will know this one.

Unknown Lynx Spider

Hi Trevor,
You have helped us with so many identifications in the past. We hope one of our readers can identify your beautiful hunting spider.

Looks an awful lot like an ant mimic in the family Corinnidae. For example (see link):A Corinnidae from Brisbane.
