Brush-footed trapdoors (Barychelidae) are the closest living relatives to Tarantulas (Theraphosidae) and share the ability to quickly climb smooth surface such as glass and plastic.

They make very thin, invisible lids to the short (~5cm) burrows, which are more like silk socks in the ground than a burrow. The abdomen is heavily mottled and when small often purple. Due to the short burrow, they are very close to the entrance and are therefore very good at immediately ambushing prey even in the day.
