male: about 6 mm
This spider may be found on the ground or in leaf litter
Unknown so handle with care
The arrangement of the legs of this spider when at rest is useful for identification purposes. In addition,
the tufts of hairs on the rear section of the abdomen also are more common on the former zorids than on any other kind of spider.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some other former zorids such as Argoctenus species, some pisaurids and the philodromid Tibellus tenellus.
