CANBERRA'S WHITE-TAILED SPIDER

Canberra White Tail SpiderLampona species
Family: Lamponidae

These dark, elongated, spiders cruise around the walls of houses during summer. They seem to feed mainly on other spiders, particularly the black house spider. In nature Lampona lives under the bark of trees, while in houses it often shelters amongst bed clothes and pillows. Recent reports in the Press that the bite of Whitetailed spiders can cause severe ulcers have no factual basis.
