My mom thinks it's a funnel web spider
I would like to see if someone can tell me what kind of spider it is. It was in my moms truck. It climbed on her leg.
Hi, it looks like a Trapdoor Spider, I’m not sure which species. I’m trying to picture it climbing up either my mom’s leg or my mother-in-law’s in a truck. There would be a lot of screaming and a major truck accident and more. I don’t think there would be any survivors. 🙁
Cork-lid Trapdoor Spider, Ummidia sp.
Thanks! Unrelated – the file for Latrodectus hesperus shows another species of spiders with the species name of hesperus by accidental misplacement. The wrong photos come up before the correct photos. Something for the things that need fixing list 😉
I think that one is out of my control, it applies to any species that shares it’s species name with another species in a different genus. I was hoping you were just referring to something I’d misfiled, because that I could fix – I had accidentally placed a bunch of Castianeira crocata in with the Dysdera crocata a while back, which I eventually realized and corrected but I can’t fix the double-sharing under pictures. I requested a delete option for submissions but didn’t hear back.
Thanks, I thought it was something like that. Know I know to watch out for the matching species names. For now I just don’t add links to the L. hesperus file on our site.
