This spider was found inside its trap-door retreat, made under the bark of a කෝං(schleichera oleosa) tree, 1.5-2m above ground. The spider and its retreat were safely removed along with the piece of bark it was attached and the spider was gently extracted from its trap using a pair of forceps. after photographing, It was returned to its retreat and the piece of bark was safely attached to the tree.
