Not sure about the identification. Found in artificial Chatham Island Petrel burrow, associated with numerous weta. A large spider measuring c.90 mm in length. Rather reddish to my colour blind eyes. Such spiders are habitually called on this island Cambridgea annulata - so I place it here and await others conclusions. I did see sheet web spiders commonly on their webs the island at night and they sort of looked like this. This particular spider is reputed to have a painful bite.
