Small Striped Prowling spider (Miturga sp. 5)


Out of stock


This is yet another prowler form the Barossa Valley, yet this time very small, unlike the massive beasts that are Sp. 4 and Sp. 1. Adult females are a cute 12mm in length and like all prowlers, very fast! This species only makes a small “web” unlike Sp. 1 and is more of. wandering hunter. They’re always hungry and whenever food is provided they jump on it just like a wolf spider! Prowling spiders (Miturgidae) differ from wolf spiders in their eye pattern – Mitrugids have 2 equal rows of 8 small, evenly-sized eyes while Lycosids have 2 very large eyes at the front and sides of the head, along with 4 smaller ones below the large main eyes at the front, though Mitrugids and Lycosids are loosely related.
