Comments & ID Thoughts

Was found under a log behind a loose web. Looks like a species of red and black spider which is what I believe it is but I cannot find any information about them in the south west as all I am finding is information about spiders on the eastern states.

Hi, based on range and what looks like notably different markings among the examples I’m seeing of the other similar genera – tentatively this looks like Nicodamus mainae. Cool spider, thanks for sharing. 🙂
