A recently re-discovered undescribed species of Peacock jumping spider (Maratus ) from Southern Queensland. This was found with Michael Duncan and Michael Doe. We were given the location by PHD peacock spider researcher Maddie Girard who recently re-discovered it. It was only known from a drawing from a 1989 publication by Davies and Zabka (Mem Qd Mus. 27(2): 189-266) and a couple of museum specimens that the drawings were based on.
