Australian “Red and Black” Spider

My first official spider sighting in Australia. My thanks to YouTube members BigBrotherMateyka and MicknFumi for offering an identification of this spider. A little research revealed that the “Red n’ Black” is of the spider family Nicodamidae. Toxicity was labeled as “uncertain” with advice to handle with care.
