Hi Bugman,
We love WTB. My wife swept up this spider whilst doing her daily chore. I think its a trap door spider. I flipped it over for a better look.
Thanks.

Dear Simply Bananas,
We wanted to hurry to get one more post up before rushing to work since we had a connectivity issue today.  We agree that this is a Trapdoor Spider, probably in the genus
Ummidia which is well represented by specimens from the South in our archives and on Bugguide.  The view of the underside is quite nice, and it matches this image on BugGuide.
