I'm having a heck of a time with this, as I'm only familiar with tarantulas; and this little bugger won't hold still long enough for me to get a decent picture. But I'm sure as anything gonna try.

Two slightly different lighting angles. His abdomen is this medium brown color, and his carapace (if that's what it's called, if not, just the 'head' area) is like a dark dark brown or red. His legs look to have faintly striped joints... and it doesn't have the boxing gloves, so I guess it's either immature or female. Only about 1/4th of an inch in size, and only looks to me like it has two front-facing eyes.

Here are the pics I managed to get:





Any ideas?

Trachleas perhaps? if it is indeed that I've found them sharing web dens before!

I'd agree. Trachelas it is--and they're sooooo cool!!!! Vicious predators, they are!

Just don't get bitten, these are known to carry bacteria on their chelicerae that can cause infections, due to their habit of sometimes feeding on pre-deceased inverts.
