Monday Night Mystery: Redrum

What, dear readers, is this?

The first commentator to guess the species of this animal will win ten Myrmecos points.

The cumulative points winner for the month of January will take home their choice of 1) any 8×10-sized print from my photo galleries, or 2) a guest post here on Myrmecos.

  1. I recognize the mottled red of a widow spider–having lived in a Tucson house with about a dozen on my porch–but since you have been in Australia it must be the Redback spider, Latrodectus hasselti.

    I suppose I might as well throw out L. katipo as a possibility…along with L. geometricus (its a little orange).

    Hooray Latrodectus.
