Hey,
I found this while showering this evening. I first thought that one of my versi's escaped. Once I cleared the eyeballs, I realized that it was not a versi. Anybody have any idea what it is. It may be a mature male. Sorry, I don't have the skill to do close-up photo's.








You can obviously see the blue in these photo's. It kinda reminded me of a Dysderidae sp.

Probably a freshly molted Herpyllus or at least a Gnaphosid genus close to it.
