I was helping to prepare a garden bed for planting when we accidentally dug up this spider. It's hole in the ground was impressive, like someone had placed a pole in the dirt and then removed it. I moved the spider to a safe place away from the garden areas. Large, dark brown and black spider.
Suburban, field area. Dug up in a vegetable garden.
Looks similar to Genus Antrodiaetus (Folding-door Spider). These images were on an old computer. I had no way to retrieve them and had to take a picture of the pictures off the screen.
