Mouse Spider (Missulena)


Category: Tag:


Mouse spiders are found over much of mainland Australia, in habitats ranging from open forest to semi-arid shrubland.

The species with the largest distribution is the Red-headed Mouse Spider. This may be related to the fact that the spiderlings of this species are known to disperse aerially by ballooning, possibly over many kilometres. This is a very rare ability among mygalomorph spiders, most of which disperse over relatively short distances by walking.
