    Hi all,

    can an anyone help me identify this spider? Is it a funnelweb? It was found in Yass, NSW. This is the 3rd one like this my mum has found walking around the outside of shops. It was approx 2.5cms from head to bum. I've never seen anything like this in all my years in Yass.

    If you find more give the reptile park a call. They always need more for their antivenin collection. Not sure if they collect from Yass though

    I used to do this back around 1976/77/78 and personally deliver them to Eric Worrell
