Found this fellow in my garage, running straight for me. I noticed it had large fangs, but I had difficulty getting a good shot of them.


Moved from ID Request.

Male trapdoor spider.
Nice image of a trapdoor spider in the family Cyrtaucheniidae. Not positive which genus, though.

Thank you for the ID, Eric. I was WAY off! This is my first "capture" (photo) of a trapdoor spider---I'm excited!
