  4. Is this a small species of trapdoor? :? If so, very cool.

    Yes, it is a rather small species, with mature males maxing out around 1" or so.
    As you can see, females can mature at a smaller size, and the spider that's molt was found would have been atleast 1.5".

    They are just awesome!

    Do you find them in WA?

    Do you know the life span of the females?

    Why thank you ;)
    Yes, I found them in washington. (just about the only cool invert here, LOL)
    And I do not know the lifespan of females, sorry.

    Are they common? ...I mean...now that you know where to look and what to look for?

    Somewhat common, probably.
    I found, oh, probably maybe 20 that day. I only kept a few, and put the rest back.
    I havent really looked many places, really, but where there is one burrow, there is usualy others nearby.
