Clynotis severa? Grey Striped Bark Jumper

A medium-sized jumper, body length around 8mm, found on grey bark in coastal areas in Queensland, particularly on Casuarinas. It has two dark stripes running lengthways along the whole body, starting at or outside the anterior median eyes then narrowing to the rear (posterior) end of the caput (upper surface of the cephalothorax). The lines then continue along the abdomen, narrow at the anterior (front) end and widening towards the spinnerets. The whole spider is grey with the darker markings brownish to dark grey.
