Author's notes

Found among grasses during a Bioblitz walk in Merimbula. Small (<5mm), probably a juvenile. The pattern of equally-sized eyes in 2 rows identifies this to the family: Eutichuridae (slender sac spiders), and the colour/shape is a good match for a green form of the genus Cheiracanthium (see Whyte & Anderson, 2017, p145)
