Dr Pawel Szymkowiak has provisionally called this species sp. nov. C based on specimens at the Australian collected from Mareeba North Queensland. It is a tiny Thomisid, body length about 3mm. It has since been found in many places up and down the Queensland and NSW coasts and hinterland.

Another new species
This specimen, from another kettle of spiders entirely, was found at the March followup Tamborine Bio Blitz at Cedar Creek, Thunderbird Park. It is also aLehtinelagia but nothing like "Stripey C". I call this one L. Pseudocetratus .
