Mouse Spider, not a Funnel-Web Spider by 

This spider was found at the same time as the female Funnel Web spider posted earlier. I “naturally” assumed it was a male Funnel Web. The Males wander more with this warm, wet weather. The Male of the species, while smaller, is far more deadly and aggressive. More likely to wander around. However I was wrong this is actually a Mouse Spider, related but not by marriage!! Probably Missulena bradleyi or similar. (They Eyes are spaced across the head, the funnel web clustered in the centre)
