Slender Sack Spider
Cream, brown or yellow
1 - 1.5 cm body length
Slender Sac Spiders are common hunters on foliage in bush and garden. Males especially, have slender bodies, large jaws and long, thin legs.
This spider is recognisable by their small cylindrical or ovoid silk retreat sacs. Their retreat sac is made of folded leaves or grass blades.
Although not common, the slender sac spider is known to enter houses.
Bites are not common and symptoms are usually minor, although Cheiracanthium bites have caused headache, nausea and minor skin ulceration.
