Size: ~2 mm
A new species for BG. Dorsal appearance and overall shape of epigynum generally appear to correspond to Levi[1], as do description and collection sites (GA, VA, MD). Levi writes "probably is closely related to Euryopis quinqueguttata Thorell, 1875, of Europe, and to Euryopis bryantae which has been collected in Texas"; E. bryantae is now a synonym.

Collected from high on interior wall of residential structure; dorsal view of specimen in alcohol.

...by none other than Prof. Levi himself. (A nice way to start the day!)
