      Need help identifying (plus a neat vid)

      I retrieved this spider 2 days ago on my back patio in a woodpile. I have since been unable to determine what kind it is, so if anyone has any ideas...

      I know the pics aren't great, I apologize it's the best I have atm...

      The spider has no markings on it's body. It's abdomen is a tannish brown, and hairy...small hairs, and when you shine the flashlight it actually shines down the middle, kinda like sunlight on a car. Only less blinding.

      The rest of it's body is a reddish color, and it's legs change to black about halfway down.

      I know it's a funnel-web spider, evidenced by the cute little web he's created for me. you can also see he/she has tunneled under the substrate, and this is where it stays.

      It is about 1 cm long (body length), I can't get a legspan...Thanks for any ideas ya'll can give me!

      AND I managed to catch it as it was extending it's burrow out a bit....kinda neat! http://youtu.be/0a2NA0F-Mec

      I can't see the spider well enough to ID it...

      posting that in a new forum wont help, the image just isnt clear enough.

      However, judging from the burrowing habits, i'd say it's a mygalomorph of some sort, the only non-mygalomorphs i can think of that ever burrow are wolf spiders, but i could be wrong.

      OH. OK. There's no prob with that. Some people will do multi-forum ID requests in hopes of a response towards ID. I've done it myself with a few bugs/True spiders that I couldn't find in searches. (rare, but it happens)
