Caught a spider that I would like to be IDed.
Location: Stevens Creek Moutains along the side of a trail in California.
Information: First set of pictures are the holes the spiders lived in. Second is the spiders themselves. There were tons of holes, but I only took two spiders. THey are about 3-4 cm DLS.












My camers sucks so sorry for the bad pics of the spiders.

folding door spiders? I think an Antrodiates pacificus or another sp. of this genus perhaps. looks like one I found here in Vancouver.

I agree, folding door spider aka Antrodiaetidae, but the shape of the thoraic furow indicates it is genus Aliatypus, a genus that has 11 species in your region.

Thanks.


I looked up the Genus Aliatypus and I only came up with trapdoor spiders.
