Author's notes

A small spider, about 5-7mm body length. My ID suggestion from "A field guide to spiders of Australia" (Whyte and Anderson) page 363. Also Kim's ID of my previous sighting https://atlasoflife.naturemapr.org/Community/Sighting/3369324 Also http://www.arachne.org.au/01_cms/details.asp?ID=1846 Note that from my research it would seem that Sidymella longipes, also thought to be wide spread in Australia, is (from photos at least) difficult to distinguish from trapezia. See "A field guide to spiders of Australia" (Whyte and Anderson) page 362.
