Strange amaurobioid - leg 3 ventral claw - Teminius affinis - female

Strange amaurobioid - leg 3 ventral claw - Teminius affinis - Female
Midlothian, Ellis County, Texas, USA
July 17, 1987
Size: 15mm body (17.5mm total)
Ventral view of the leg 3 claw, after I removed as much of the claw tuft as I could. There is a sclerotized region flush with the base of the tarsus and hooking ventrally below the tarsus. I couldn't get it to pivot, should it actually be a claw.
