Hi all, on our trip to the farm in the previous weeks, i came accross this babboon spider. I tried to look for an i.d. But found none. Please help.
We put him in a little glass cage to take photos and he was released later the day, under the rock i found him.

Looks to me like one of the Harpactirella/Brachionopus species.
Was it found under a rock/log in some webbing?
Around 4cm?

Yes, under a rock with webbing around it. Any common name?

I have heard people call them Lesser baboon spiders.
