Does anyone recognise this species? I found it in an arid region of the Andes; it had "glued" grass stems together forming a dome-shaped structure in which it built its web, the entrance was round and lined with silk; it first caught my attention because it looked like the entrance of a tarantula burrow, upon closer inspection I saw the inhabitant (latrodectus?). Unfortunately, I was unable to see its underside.
Arid region in the Andes, at about 1500m above sea level, in an area called "Desierto de Jubones".
