Not a Trapdoor Spider - Plectreurys - male

Not a Trapdoor Spider - Plectreurys - Male
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
April 13, 2015
Size: 12mm body - 25mm legs
NOTE: Legs III & IV are smaller/thinner and very different from those on the Trapdoor Spiders and somewhat helpful to see clearly for ID purposes.
The pale spot on the bottom of the leg joint is clearly visible here, on leg IV. I'm not sure how common this character is, nor how often it shows up on other types of spider's images.
