Brown Spider, dime size body - Kukulcania hibernalis

Brown Spider, dime size body - Kukulcania hibernalis
Lake Forest, Orange County, California, USA
July 7, 2014
Size: 1inch body
Found on side of cinder block wall, crawling out of gap in grout from a cylindrical web.

Moved
Moved from Kukulcania.

I agree with Marcus regarding hibernalis.
Luckily this species tends to be wholly synanthropic, and should not displace native Kukulcania. It may be an issue for other native synanthropic spiders, though.

hibernalis
The solid color and white coxae are characteristic of hibernalis

Our native coastal socal kukulcania species lack white coxae, and tend to be lighter brown.. This species is an uncommon adventive in socal.

Moved from Spiders. A crevice weaver.
