Description

This introduced species preys on spiders in NZ, but is not known to do so in its native AU. In this case, preying on false katipo is no loss, but unfortunately on multiple occasions I have also found it preying on katipo, seashore wolf spiders, and other native spiders. #1 on my hit list, it got the squeeze, as always.

Not really sure if this is actually a moss but hoping somebody will know. As you'll see by the other photos, it grows like a carpet between other alpine plants in the exposed environment of the "Lookout" just off the road to Makahu Saddle Hut, Kaweka Forest Park.

This looks like Steatoda capensis has taken down a larger (meaner) spider. Anew situation in my book. The squashed S.capensis beside the corpse was alive when I arrived.

Description

This was the first time I captured photos of S.trapezia doing in a katipo. It has remained on the top of my hit list since then, with a few more incidents on katipo, a handful on Anoteropsis litoralis, and a few other species I'm less concerned about.

Location about 200m north of the OB surf club.
