Description

Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me while I was walking today, but I am 95% sure I escorted a trapdoor spider out of the road, perhaps a male looking for a mate after the big rain we had Friday night?

I am curious though about the scientific name, I have found both Bothriocyrtum californium, and Aliatypus californicus. Is this the same species, just a taxonomic shift?

What about the genus Calisoga? Is this the native trapdoor spider to the Bay Area?

In my quick internet search, I have not been able find a range for these spiders… Or a species specific to Sonoma county...
