Comments & ID Thoughts

Never seen a spider like this before. About 2" long. The side with all the legs is the direction it was walking. What is it??? Thanks

Hi, tentative ID given the amount of detail here. Just basing the ID on what is common and what looks like a extra pair of legs (long pedipalps), this is likely a male California Trapdoor Spider. 🙂
