Folding-door Spiders (Antrodiaetus sp.) on Nov 29, 2023

Submitter does not have a specimen

Description of specimen

About the size of a quarter. When I approached, it reared up. It was seen when I went for a walk at 2pm in the afternoon.


That is our native Folding Trap-door spider, Antrodiaetus. There are a few species. They're big, but they're not dangerous to people or pets.
