Description

This species of mallee wolf spider is remarkably similar to our Sunburst wolf spiders (Tasmanicosa harmsi) and even share the same clay pan habitat, however they are wandering hunters compared to our Sunburst’s which occupy burrows.

These spiders do however lack the powdery blue legs of true Sunburst’s. These spiders need desert sand or clay as substrate, with sand preferable. a depth of 5-6cm is ample. On one side of the enclosure there must be a lot of ventilation and a bark hide, and the other side very little or none with another piece of bark. on the non-ventilated end the sand must be moist. this creates a moisture gradient which allows the spider to find a suitable microhabitat within the enclosure.

These spiders are slightly smaller than true Sunburst’s, at about 20mm compared to a true sunburst’s 24-30mm length.
