Tan Wandering ghost spider (Argoctenus sp. 4)


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Argoctenus sp. 4 is a species of Miturgid prowling spider found in SA’s northern mallee.  This species prefers open, rocky mallee habitats with long grasses, where they hide under large white rocks and in leaf litter, where they also hunt.

Argoctenus are blazingly fast and can climb basically every surface, so be careful when opening/closing the enclosure, as they like to climb upwards. They benefit from things such as vertical sticks (hot glued to the base of the enclosure, then covered with sand) to climb on, as they are semi arboreal (both terrestrial and arboreal) and love climbing.

This species grows to 13mm in body length. This species is mostly found on a species of bushy plant found in the area, where they actively wander on the plant, jumping from stem to stem.

Optional kit includes:

  • Jumperarium 2.0 Enclosure
  • Faux plant
  • Desert Sand substrate
  • Climbing accessories (Argoctenus are semi-arboreal)
