From Naylor Run Park, about half a mile from the type locality.

Fix needed for display of species name
The name is appearing above my photos as 'Atypus snetsingeri (snetsingeri)'. The species was described in 1973 by Patricia Sarno and the name should appear as Atypus snetsingeri Sarno. I can send a pdf of the original paper if that would help.

Is the .pdf available online? If so, let me know the URL and I will put a reference link to it on the species info page.

 
url to description
http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/20571#page/49/mode/1up

I think this reference will take you directly to the article starting on page 37. This is a very rare document these days as no copies of the 'Ent News' journal seem to be available anymore.

Thanks!

 
That's not an attribution.
It's just a repetition of the specific epithet. You'll see it at the top of each image page for any given species, following either the common name (if there is one) or the full species name. For instance, above the Brown Recluse images, you'll find "Brown Recluse (reclusa)." Above the Loxosceles arizonica images you'll see "Loxosceles arizonica (arizonica)."

 
thanks
thanks for the clarification
