Size: ~5mm
Specimen was wild caught in October. I keyed it out to Trachelas huachucanus (Platnick and Shadab, 1974) but that species is not found in FL. I could use a second pair of eyes on this. Thanks!

T. similis seems right to me, but we'll see if anyone else has thoughts before we make a page for it.

T. similis
Comparing the palps to Platnick and Shadab, 1974 this looks a lot like T. similis to me.

Thank you, Nathaniel, for taking a look! I went to the wrong abdomen color right out of the gate, haha! Yes, the median duct, shape of the embolus, and entire shape of the bulb matches. Back-keying from similis, everything makes much more sense now. I appreciate your help!
