Yes, Eraxasilus sp., female. Note the armature of bristles anteroventrally on femur2 -- which seem typical of this genus. This is similar to E. gerion but really need a male to make that ID.

Thanks Eric. Surprisingly I was able to get close to the females of this species. The males wouldn't let me get anywhere close. Way too wary!

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
