Mouse Spider, female - Photography by Kevin McCue

This is a large 1-3.5cm long black spider with a shiny carapace,easily confused with a funnel-web spider. The mouse spiders are burrowing spiders, in eastern Australia in an open forest habitat. The sting is intense but not fatal and swelling and pain/itching may persist for several days.
