Author's notes

This spider appeared to have taken up residence in a Trap Door Spider tunnel, which I guess had been abandoned by its builder. The spider did not come out, nor did it shut the trap door. It may have been the burrow of this spider as well, happy to get the advice of the moderators on the hole.

It may well be the spider's own burrow and lid - some wolf spiders do make lids to their burrows in the manner of true trapdoor spiders.

Hi Kim, Many thanks for that information about the burrow and lid. Cheers
