I think this is one of the Nursery-web Spiders?

Quite a story to this one, if I may add! :twisted:

I had my jacket hanging over the back of my office chair and I think she must have fallen from the exposed rafters above and into my jacket. When I pulled said jacket over my shoulders something hit the floor with a distinct "plop".

The spiderlings crawled out from the nest and at the first sign of movement they ran to the sack to crawl back in. There must have been hundreds of them!

I first caught her under a glass, took a few pics, gently released her and her brood into the safety of the corral tree then RAN for the shower! The jacket went straight to the washing machine, on a hot cycle! :lol:
