Arachosia cubana

Arachosia cubana
Texas City, Texas County, Texas, USA
May 2, 2021
tentatively identified on iNat here:

Texas Records
NB: The guide page lists data point(s) from Texas but there are no TX records in Platnick 1974 or the most recent generic revision (Rubio & Ramírez 2015). Also not listed in Dean's Texas Spiders checklist, which includes some unpublished sources. I believe this may be a new state record for this species - assuming it's this species and not a different newly-introduced or vagrant Arachosia species.

Great find.
