Antrodiaetus riversi - Atypoides riversi

Antrodiaetus riversi - Atypoides riversi
Long Ridge OSP, Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Clara County, California, USA
September 16, 2007
We were hiking at night and happened to look at some turrets we see in the daytime, and found that the spiders were hanging out at the top of their burrows. It was between 8:30-9:00. We saw a few turrets in the space of a foot or so, all with awaiting spiders, some burrows with redwood needles surrounding the opening. If a spider thought there was a little too much activity, it would quickly back up into the burrow, but the flashlight didn't seem to bother them much.

Moved from Spiders.

 
Question on genus.
Has riversi moved from Atypoides to Antrodiaetus now?

 
Synonymized
Atypoides was synonymized under Antrodiaetus last year. See notes in Platnick's catalog.

 
Thank you.
Thank you, Jay!

Interesting.
You have obviously done your research! Might be that species or genus, but I think there are a few other possibilities. Definitely reminds me of something in the Antrodiaetidae, though. Please unlink these images unless they are of the same INDIVIDUAL specimen. Judging by the burrow entrance, they are not. Thank you for sharing these!

 
What others
might they be? I'm curious, since those burrows were so close.
