Adult male - Eratigena atrica - male

Adult male - Eratigena atrica - Male
Cowichan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
July 25, 2013
Size: ~15mm body length
Found in a shed near the house. He must have just matured recently because he was still in his web, which he's had since last year.

This is the biggest male I've measured so far. When I was taking the palp shots he was in a kinda flattened position on his back, legs all stretched out. In that pose his leg span exceeded 9cm!
