Nice one, Max! The following features lead me to this ID - steeply rising caput, eyes positioned in a compact arrangement, relatively long legs, massive chelicerae, no apophysis on tibia II, tibia I and metatarsus I not thickened.

Also spinnerets project beyond end of abdomen (albeit somewhat obscured by stick).

Hi Paul - Thanks for finding the time for this one. I know you have been busy. I had followed through from your description and specimens of H. nimoola in the species list and thought that's probably what we had, but I was foxed finally, into indecision, by the long silky looking hairs on legs and chelicerae which seemed untypical.
   25 Nov 2018
Hi Max - your indecision was justified! I had overlooked those long, fine hairs. Checking the SEM images of the various Hadronyche species in the Gray 2010 paper, I see that a dense covering of long, fine hairs on the distal leg segments is indeed a feature of several Hadronyche species, but not H. nimoola. It's not listed as a diagnostic feature and the features used to decide between those other species cannot be seen in your images. So I think it would be safest to leave this one as Hadronyche sp. Based on location, H. cerberea would be the most likely option.
