Antrodiaetus riversi - California Turret Spider - Atypoides riversi

Antrodiaetus riversi - California Turret Spider - Atypoides riversi
Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve, Sonoma County, California, USA
January 15, 2011
This was on the East Ridge Trail. By rubbing a thin twig around the edges of its burrow, I was able to "fish" the spider out for a second. They were very common along this portion of the tail on fairly steep trailcuts.
