Size: ~10mm - body

Moved from Tegenaria.

Done.

Coras or Tegenaria?
Was any consensus reached on whether this is Coras or Tegenaria? If it's Coras, it's in the wrong section.

Coras sp. ?
I think this might be a Coras species. Tegenaria tend to have a duller, more hairy carapace than this. What do you guys think?

 
Yeah, I think you're right. W

Well, it may have been partially my fault too

...
Did we forget to move this to Coras or is there some doubt?

 
..
No, it's certainly Coras. The question is, which one (medicinalis or lamellosus). After a bit of this way and that way, my pick would be Coras medicinalis -- that is unless someone with a sharper eye comes along and says otherwise.

 
Even if the species can't be
Even if the species can't be identified, it should probably be moved from Tegenaria to Coras.
