Wow, that is very neat. Almost as if it sticks its butt out there as to resemble a Fossil in the dirt.

I've never really liked trap door spiders. For some reason they give me the willies lol.

That is quite interesting though. It does resemble a fossil.

Cyclocosmia loricata (C. L. Koch, 1842) — Mexico, Guatemala
Cyclocosmia ricketti (Pocock, 1901) — China
Cyclocosmia siamensis Schwendinger, 2005 — Thailand
Cyclocosmia torreya Gertsch & Platnick, 1975 — USA

Danger Will Robinson!!! I encountered a rogue AV installer at that site.

(I'm not implying the OP was at fault, it's just a compromised domain.)

Edit: Oh, it's Imageshack, that makes sense. Imageshack is rife with malware.
