You would be hard-pressed to find somebody in Australia who hasn't seen or at

least know of Daddy Long-Legs spiders, they are pretty much ubiquitous in urban

areas along with many native and introduced species in rural and remote regions.

We have a good selection of introduced species in Australia, but we have far more

native species, it's just highly unlikely you'll see a native species in your outside

dunny. Difficult to identify means many have been mislabeled as the cosmopolitan

species, Pholcus phalangioides.  This species is the most common inside homes,

  but as soon as you hit the shed, the carport or the hills there will be other species,

some far more common than phalangioides.
