In Thirroul, South of Sydney, Amanda noticed the eight-eyed creature. However, it disappeared very quickly. After 18 months, in June, the creature decided to pay a visit once more. This time, she managed to take a photo.
She clicked the photo of the tiny creature and posted on a spider identification Facebook page and asked what is this?
The creature had a blue face and spider experts from Melbourne could not ignore it. They asked Amanda to send the photos to further examine the situation. They confirmed that the creature is unidentified.
Amanda was thrilled to know that the species is not only beautiful but equally important. She had to do all the hard work to find the species again once she knew that it is unidentified spider species. She eventually captured two of the species in a container safely, reported Daily Mail.

Ms. Amanda called herself an amateur nature lover, but she is thrilled to have found something so important and unique.
