Have you seen more than one of these? I lived in Keizer, OR and never once saw a single mygalomorph to the best of my recollection. If there were only one, I would expect it to be a lost pet.

I can identify it as a mygalomorph, though that doesn’t narrow it down much. How large is it?

I found the exact spider in my back yard in Salem yesterday and have been trying to ID it. I don’t know how to post pics here but I did post it to iNaturalist: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/18616400

To post on this site, go to the top of the screen, in a black horizontal bar is the camera icon that says, “submit.” After that it is the usual upload, but note that the photo may be automatically cropped. To post multiple angles at the same time you can make them into a single photo collage using a photo editing app. I use the Google photos collage option. The collages you make work for posting to most sites. I even store my own multi angle photos of the same specimen as collages in digital albums to keep them together.

Probably a trapdoor spider of genus Ummidia. Ten species with USA habitat are listed in wikipedia. Your spider looks like something out of a sci-fi movie !!!

This is most likely a folding door spider, also known as a trapdoor spider
