Habronattus coecatus

Centerville, Cape Cod, MA

Adult Male-

I was on my way to a Habronattus agilis location I had found last year and decided to jump off my mountain bike and run into this small grassy meadow just off a hotel parking lot for a quick search. I was completely amazing to find 5 males of this species!!! The fact that they were all adult males was also interesting and amazing. As far as I know this species has only been found in one other location in MA by Dick Walton. This was something high on my wish list but not something I was expecting to find in August on the Cape. .
