Author's notes

The striped legs were very obvious when it was running.

Due to small images not containing much detail I can only suggest either Stephanopis sp. or Philoponella sp. as my best guess, sorry.

It kept running and hiding!! Hence the finger in the pics. It did have a humpy back like the philoponella, visible from side on

I put the pics on the Australian Spider ID page on Facebook and they suggested s either Janula bicornis or Moneta australis
