Shimmering ground spider (Gnaphosidae sp.)


Pretty little spiders!


This species of Gnaphosid ground spider is found on trees, like nearly half of all Gnaphosid species ironically.

This is a small species, with adults growing to 8mm in body length. The head is a metallic copper colour and the abdomen is shining silver.

Both Gnaphosids and Lamponids are mildly venomous, but urban legend has it that Lamponid bites result in necrotic lesions that return on the biteversary. This has been proved false numerous times however people still believe this and spread misinformation.

These spiders can climb smooth surfaces and are very fast, be careful!

Optional kit includes:

  • Jumperarium enclosure
    Crumbled leaf litter
    Bark flakes
  • Clay based substrate
  • Sphagnum moss
  • Fake plants
