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...

Description

Tinea occidentella larvae develop in the scat of carnivores (coyotes and bobcats), on owl pellets, and probably on carrion. They are NOT clothes moths and have no record of development on clothes. http://bodegahead.blogspot.com/2013/10/home-sweet-scat.html
