A very elusive and unique species among this genus. It is one of only a few that construct lids. but more than that, it hinges them from the bottom like a drawbridge, and constructs a ring of silk around the burrow in place of triplines. Unlike all my others, this little one has webbed everywhere
Arbanitis sp. Coramba has finally let me take not just a bunch of photos, but a full video of her catching food. She is in heavy premolt and still this vivid. Normally, her leg hairs are bright red, but I honestly am so thrilled to finally get a decent photo of this species after many months
Arbanitis sp. Coramba, my golden tube spider. Of all my various specimens from this genus, none come even close to comparing to the stunning sunset red "feather leg hairs" this girl has. She comes out of her tube for 1 hour about once a week, and Ive never gotten a decent photo of her since arrival.
