I am trying to add a spider to this data base, but it said the family, and genus wasn't familiar and I needed to post the details here.
This is from bugGuide:

Kingdom Animalia (Animals)
Phylum Arthropoda (Arthropods)
Class Arachnida (Arachnids)
Order Araneae (Spiders)
Infraorder Mygalomorphae (Mygalomorphs)
Family Atypidae (Purseweb Spiders)
Genus Sphodros
Species rufipes (Redlegged purseweb spider)

So, how do I do this? My photo isn't great. My husband took it and the spider was on the run, so hard to get a good shot of it, but it was definitely this spider.
