Temporary page to hold Parazygiella & Zygiella that can't be separated at this time.
Also, atrica has reds and/or greens on the body while dispar has more strongly banded legs. Z. x-notata is at its peak season so just look around habitats (outside of buildings, wooden fences) and you're almost sure to find another. Rod Crawford Nov. 2012
