Maratus melindae Waldock 2013 

The pattern of the dorsal opisthosomal plate of Maratus melindae  ( Figure 1 View Figure ) resembles that of M. mungaich  , and one specimen has previously been associated with that species ( Waldock 1995, 2013), but the small black spot on each lateral flap of M. mungaich  is lacking. This species has been collected at two localities in the eastern part of the Stirling Range National Park, not far from the higher elevations to the east where M. sarahae  has been found ( Waldock 2013; Figure 12 View Figure :2, Figure 15 View Figure ).
