Second one of these that I have seen in Albuquerque.
Not showing as part of the range for this spider.
Due to palp size, reasonably sure of sex.

Thank you for the quick confirmation and the compliment.
I do a lot of wood working and wonder if this is how I came by him.
My bulk wood is all local so I wonder if the range has increased?
Thank you again.
Are the palps large enough to call male or more likely female?
Thanks.
