Lauricus hooki. I filed a bunch of your other images.


Yes, I’m reasonably confident on this one … here’s an example of a dark one, the pattern is faint but what I can make out looks consistent enough.

There’s only one other species in the genus and the World Spider Catalog lists the range for it as Mexico though I remember hearing once it was possibly also in the US too though I don’t know to what extent or how to differentiate them. Of the two hooki is the likely one though. The palps are too small for it to be a Kukulcania.
