Badumna longingua - Brown House Spider  
  Desidae  

Similar in appearance to the Black House Spider but the overall colour is brown and the abdomen has more distinct markings. This spider was found in a tangled web in the folded top of a fertilizer bag in a shed. Bites cause necrotising archnidism.
