Tube web - Ariadna? - Segestria pacifica

Tube web - Ariadna? - Segestria pacifica
Edmonds, Snohomish County, Washington, USA
July 26, 2013
I have no idea what this spider is. I've been trying to find out for weeks with no luck. I looked in my handbook and it showed an Ariadna web that looked just like this. I'm going to try to get a picture of it's eyes better if it doesn't hide when I get close.

Moved from ID Request.
I think Segestria pacifica is very likely too.

Segestria pacifica
I think you're definitely right about the family, but this is probably Segestria pacifica based on a discussion I had with Rod Crawford about it here considering your location.

Very nice find and good shot of the web. The second shot is interesting - it looks like some of the eyes may be undeveloped?

bad camera positioning probably
I shot from weird angles. I can upload one of the face shots I got if it helps.

Okay, looks like all the eyes are there in the new shots. :) It was probably a combination of the angle and lighting - I couldn't see one of the middle eyes before.

Possibly a Tegenaria species.

Another picture
Added a picture. I was finally able to get it to come out a bit.

Not sure
Well, I didn't want to say Tegenaria because of the way the web is built, and the location is iffy. I have a few living in the house but none have occupied the holes in the walls like this.

To my knowledge, they have a little hammock sort of thing extending from the little tunnel they hide in.

But for all we know, it might be Tegenaria.
