Mygalomorphae, I suspect, but what kind? - Sphodros atlanticus

Mygalomorphae, I suspect, but what kind? - Sphodros atlanticus
Johnston County, North Carolina, USA
June 14, 2011
Size: 9.5mm body + ~3mm fangs
This spider was caught under a porch light and briefly pinned for photographing purposes. This spider has 8 eyes in a pattern appropriately the same as shown in the diagram for the Ctenizidae family here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/84423, but I don't think it's that family (Note: I have close to zero experience with spider ID).
