Black Purse Web spider - Ummidia

Black Purse Web spider - Ummidia
12 miles SSE of Ozark Missouri, Christian County, Missouri, USA
July 12, 2016
It was walking slowly in the leaf duff and wasn't intimidated by my camera close up. It moved slowly and didn't try to get away. I thought I had a good face shot for eye ID but failed. I think it is Sphodros niger.
