Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this spider at night. It has a dark brown shiny thorax and silky abdomen. It moves slowly, and will drag itself backwards with its hind legs while playing dead.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 As I think you saw on the other post I think this is one of the Wafer-lid Trapdoor Spiders (Euctenizidae).
