Hi I am from Melbourne Australia and found this spider on my bed !
It was super fast but I got a clear picture
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have 2 babies in the house
Anyone help with identification of this spider?
I will just add it was only quite small maybe a pinky nail length
Eeekkkspider, your spider is a juvenile of the White-backed Spider - Lampona cylindrata: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-tailed_spider
My second picture is of an adult and the third is a juvenile. The first shows one in transition between juvenile and adult, so perhaps an immature.
Thank you so much Ken. Thankfully I killed it. Never the ought it was a white tail though but now I know they can look like this I am so grateful for your help.
