I've looked at some images and this could be leuckartii, but I'm not confident enough to call it that yet. P.S. Tasmanicosa leuckartii is listed in Lycosa in the AFD - https://biodiversity.org.au/afd/taxa/38669cf8-a866-48ea-a165-c4459c714bb7 .

In 2016 the Lycosa genus was revised to Tasmanicosa (see Framenau and Baehr Zootaxa 4213 (1): 001-082). It still stands as Lycosa on ALA - I'm not sure why. Note that in a dorsal view like this, it is not possible to distinguish between Tasmanicosa leukartii and Tasmanicosa godeffroyi - you need a ventral view of the abdomen. Having said that, there are no reports in the Framenau and Baehr paper of T. leukartii in the ALCW region, whereas there are many of T. godeffroyi. So this spider is highly likely to be T. godeffroyi but in the absence of a ventral view, that can't be stated with absolute certainty.
