Trapdoor Spider - Ummidia
Durham County, North Carolina, USA
June 23, 2003
Size: 17 mm
Found wandering around on a road. This is a male--large pedipalps. Chilled, posed, and released. Body length about 17 mm (original photo was with a scale, edited out in this version). Looks identical to the specimen from Salisbury, NC, almost the same date in 2004.
Stephen Hall, of the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program, informs me that this is one of two species U. audouini, or U. carabivora.
