Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA November 13, 2010 Size: 9mm
Found by spider enthusiast Joel Hallan in his home. This spider has a strong preference for vertical surfaces. I would chase it around and around the outside of the jar, trying to get it onto a flat surface for photographing. Whenever I enclosed it with another container, it would immediately take to its vertical surface. This repeated in the 2nd photo session as well.
