Author's notes

Found atop a large rocky outcrop, this small (circa 8mm body length) spider set off at a determined walk to find another crevice or rock for concealment. I realise that my ID suggestion to species is probably a little heroic. I based it on the photos and description in the Whyte and Anderson "Field Guide to Australian Spiders" Pages 193 and 195.

Tricky little family this one though logic confirms your suggestions Max. Using the same reference and also 'A guide to the spiders of Australia'( Framenau, et al 2014), on external appearance, esp black markings on legs 3/4 I may have suggested Litodamus sp. though this genus is restricted to Tasmanian distribution. Considering variability within the family your suggestion is solid.
