They weren't too close together. Maybe 50 miles apart. Still pretty sweet though. I was at work when I took these pictures. I work for an entomologist, and so I get to drive all over the Willamette Valley every week. Everything was found today at our sites.
They have microhabitat preferences, but once you know what to look for, they are everywhere. I don't know what paper you found, but if you find the one about the two species in NC, that will tell you a little about what to look for (A. pacificus and A. unicolor are similar ecologically).I've just been searching for these on the net, and found a paper of yours. So far my searches have told me that I can pretty much find them anywhere. Is that right?
Actually, now that I think about it. I'm going to have to get to identifying some of the spiders I've recently caught. Who knows what I'm missing out on because I just didn't take the time to look them up.
