While I couldn’t definitively key out this Hadronyche to the species level from this one image, its overall morphology does match the image of this species in Gray, M. 2010 A Revision of the Australian Funnel-web Spiders. Records Australian Museum 62: 285-392. On that basis and on the advice of your spider expert, I am willing to call this one.

The sighting is also well within the previously described distribution of Hadronyche versuta.
