I found her while on a collecting trip with arachnologist, Rod Crawford of the Burke Museum in Seattle. It was an amazing experience for me. We found all sorts of awesome arachnids, all of which I had never seen before!

This adult female is absolutely puny. She is a cousin of the tarantulas, but is an absolute speck when compared to them! When I found her, she was holding the sac as seen in this video, on the underside of a chunk of a fallen tree. She had a neat little webbing setup too. Aside from an Antrodiaetus pacificus I had found in my backyard, ( only had that one for about two days)this is the only mygalomorph I have ever had.

I remember Rod saying they live in Washington, Oregon and Idaho and another species lives in North Carolina ( I think?)
