Description

Gorgyrella sp

In some species the males have a spur on their legs, which they will show if provoked

Idiopidae build burrows, and some species close these with a door

The about 2 cm long Prothemenops siamensis from Thailand builds its retreat in a streamside vertical earth bank in lower montane rain forest Each burrow had two or three entrances that lead into a main tube Its lateral posterior spinnerets are elongated

The oldest known idiopida died at the age of 43 years
