Adult female - Antrodiaetus pacificus - female

Adult female - Antrodiaetus pacificus - Female
Cowichan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
September 14, 2013
Size: ~18mm body length
Found in the soil while I was digging in our garden.

First leg tarsus length = 1.65 +- 0.05mm, metatarsus IV/metatarsus I = ~1.25. Almost perfectly average according to the measurements for A. pacificus in Coyle 1971. Measurements were made by photographing the first and fourth legs laterally at the same magnification and comparing them using a scale photo at the same resolution. Not to scale in the uploaded photos.

Stay tuned, I'm going to try letting her dig a burrow in a narrow clear container before I release her in hopes of getting a shot of its shape.
