Tapinauchenius cupreus

(Schmidt & Bauer, 1996)

Violet tree spider (arboreal)
~ 4 cm bodylength
Longevity: ♀ ~ ? years, ♂ ~ ? years

As the name suggests, this small species owes its name to a copper sheen that covers almost the entire body. Like all Tapinauchenius, they are very quick and live rather withdrawn. They build beautiful webs and line them with soil
