Australothele jamiesoni Rainforest Curtain-web Spider

The Rainforest Curtainweb Spider is medium sized Diplurid occupying riverine and subtropical rainforest. The filmy web is made in small to large natural spaces between rocks, under logs, identifiable to genus by the combination of web type and spinnerets.

Curtainweb, Dipluridae, and either Australothele jamiesoni or Namirea planipes; the moister habitat suggests the former. They should be adult now. They are quite fast so if you pull up the log be ready to dive on it, gentlt!
