Lo found this across the stream while Trent and I were trying to photograph a turret spider, which is like WAY more impressive, because trapdoors are super hard to find. She said the spider was running around outside its burrow. I'm not entirely sure how to distinguish between an Antrodiatidae burrow and a Euctenizidae burrow.

The burrow entrance was ~10 cm in diameter, and was positioned on a steep, north-facing embankment above a stream.

This was on a steep embankment next to a seasonal stream, some moss and open soil (muddy), under cover of Umbellularia californica and Quercus agrifolia. My only other experience with this species was from the Presidio, where they were under logs amid a California cypress stand (maybe with some pine) with little to no understory and sandy soil. So basically I don't have a feel for this guy's habitat preferences yet.

Most of my attempts to illicit strike responses from turret spiders end in failure, but for whatever reason Trent was able to get this one to cooperate. I tried to reciprocate but again without luck. Trent was gently stroking the edge of the turret with a twig, whereas I was poking it, so maybe the key is to immitate a smaller insect. There's anecdotal evidence to suggest that they eat ants, so maybe think ant-sized movements. Also, you need to do it under cover of full darkness for them to be staged near the burrow entrance (though they seemed willing to strike under flashlight illumination).

Note the deep, transverse foveal groove and the sclerite on the abdomen, both indicative of the former genus Atypoides (Adams 2014).
