Description


#Fragile

Cyclocosmia sp or also commonly known as Chinese Hourglass Trapdoor Spider is a type of trapdoor spider that have bizarre looking butt that look like ancient Chinese stamp.

They are easily distinguished from each other by the pattern of the abdominal disk, the number of hairs on its seam, and the shape of the spermathecae. They have abdomens that are abruptly truncated, ending in a hardened disc that is strengthened by a system of ribs and grooves.They use this to clog the entrance of their burrow when being threatened, a phenomenon called phragmosis. The disks have strong spines around the edge, and they each have four spinnerets just anterior to it. The posterior, retractable spinnerets are particularly large.

Cyclocosmia ricketti can reach as big as 1.1 inch long for females with a disk diameter of 16mm. The depth of their burrow is around 7 to 15 cm and only the bottom portion of the burrow is silk lined.
