Found these at the dunes next to the Jurien Bay Jetty Western Australia

The non coloured version, I have been told is a variant of the coloured version. Both are adult males

Superb shots. You lucky bugger, I've been looking for these guys for years. Living on Mid North Coast NSW. They should be here, maybe they don't like me.

Mat,
These guys are only found on the southern west coast as far as I know, mostly around Perth

Check out this group on Facebook "Peacock spiders in nature and art" Jurgen Otto (the Peacock spider Guru) has a document that shows the areas that you could find Peacock spiders

Great shots Rick! Like Mat I'm yet to find and Peacock spiders. I have lots of M. scutulatus in my backyard, but that's all.
