    Gnaphosidae
    (family)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Arachnida: Araneae: Gnaphosidae
    Liz O'Donnell says

    Thanks Mark. The shape of the white spot above the spinnerets does indeed suggest Gnaphosidae, see http://www.findaspider.org.au/find/spiders/541.htm.

    This is most likely a Gnaphosid, possibly something like Eilica sp.

    Lamponidae
    (family)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Arachnida: Araneae: Lamponidae
    Liz O'Donnell says

    Not the best known Lamponid, namely Lampona cylindrata, but hard to ID further as there are few photos available for the other 200 or so species in this family.
