Im not exactly sure about the DFW area, but Ill make an educated guess and say hentzi. This is the right time of year to find them, but it might take some looking up there, cause more habitat has been destroyed.

IME, looking on public lands (which are few and far between) north and east of DFW is you best bet. You shouldn't have much trouble finding A. hentzi.

You can find the "population" that Smith described as Aphonopelma gurleyi just north of Dallas.
