During an inventory of moths at the ‘Hooiberg’ (Haacht, Belgium) we spotted this male Purseweb spider (Atypus affinis). This protected species belongs to the Mygalomorphae, a group that also includes the tarantulas. Only two Mygalomorphae species occur in Belgium. Watch the video of this remarkable encounter.
