Singa keyserlingi
Seems possible. Did you read through the PDF? I'd like to see what a few other people think before we create a new guide page. Nice find.

 
I agree with Singa keyserlingi
I zoomed in on this gal's epigyne and from what I can see, it sure looks like S. keyserlingi. Range and the rest of the description fits, too. I sure wish I/we could get a hold of a diagram of S. cyanea genitalia/range map to make sure it's not incredibly similar, though. The epigynes of S. keyserlingi & S. eugeni are different enough to tell apart from a photo like this, but It'd be nice to rule out S. cyanea, too. Anybody ever been able to get a paper on that species?

 
Epigynum
I agree that the superficial photo looks correct for the species. I do have the specimen in alcohol now and will attempt to do further investigation. I would also like more information about S. cyanea, particularly range.

 
Chad, Did you ever get any
Chad,

Did you ever get any more detailed photos of the epigynum?

 
I looked
under the former name, but the PDF was not available. I think we can move ahead with keyserlingi. If we find new information later, we can fix it.

 
Sounds good! :)
Sounds good! :)

 
Yes I read through that pdf a
Yes I read through that pdf and it seems to match drawings as well as descriptions. My only confusion is that the Spiders of North America lists two species for that genus: S. cyanea (Worley) and S. eugenii Levi. Where does that leave S. keyserlingi McCook?
