Mygalomorph Trapdoor Spider, Kempner, TX 111208, pg 5

Eucteniza spp Frontal FaceThis photo shows the eye cluster of this spider from the front, with the basal chelicerae in the lower portion of the photo below what appears as a delicately delineated clypeus (the space between the eyes and the chelicerae). Note that  the head (pars cephalica) is not elevated behind the eye group, as in the Ummidia (Ctenizidae). The anterior median eyes (AME) in the center of the face look forward and slightly upward. Flanking the AME, the anterior lateral eyes (ALE) face forward, angled down and to the side. The brightly reflective posterior median eyes (PME) are midway between, and behind, the ALE and AME. The posterior lateral eyes (PLE), which face backward and to the side, are not visible but their tubercles appear as dark knobs, next to the PME.
