  • Blakistonia is a genus of trapdoor spider found across Southern Australia  where they construct a burrow with a semi-circular lid in open ground. The lids can be very hard to see if camouflaged with mosses. This species is from near Adelaide and grows to 30mm.
  • They come in multiple colour forms throughout their range, this from has a darker yellow head and legs than usual and the skin on the abdomen is particularly transparent, allowing the green blood to be seen through it giving it a green tinge. The green form is from Williamstown SA, at the northern side of their range.

Mildly venomous.

Suitable for all experience levels

    Love this chunky lil one! Arrived happy and healthy, a really nice size too and lovely colour. Bit shy at first but overnight had started a tunnel and was keen for a feed the next day. Really glad I added this one to the household!
