Largest macadamia I've seen in Santa Rosa
NEW ZEALAND AK, Huapai Scientific Reserve, 25 Nov-22 Dec 2009, malaise trap, D. Ward.
Identification: Reuda mayri White, 1878. Male.
These spiders were found under pine wooden disks placed in the reserve for the purpose of monitoring invertebrates. We have noted spiders up to 25mm length. The funnel webs around the tunnels suggest they are Hexathele? If so, these are very uncommon in the South Island, being found only on Bank Peninsula and Hoods Bush near Glentunnel. Note: this work was done under DOC permit.
