OTHER WOLF SPIDERS (1)

The surest way to recognize a wolf spider is by the general stout body shape, the eye arrangement and by the fact that they are usually not in a web. Their general body shape is somewhat stout with the cephalothorax and abdomen of about equal sizes. The legs also are stout, fairly even in length and strong enough to support the spiders weight. The legs can be compared to those of many web building spiders whose legs are much longer and thinner. In wolf spiders, the anterior eyes are made up of 4 small eyes in a row, and the posterior eyes are 4 large eyes arranged in two rows. From a front view, you can see a row of 4 small anterior eyes with two larger eyes above them and 2 eyes further back on the head. The large eyes are significant in their behaviour: wolf spiders do have good eyesight (especially for spiders) and use vision fairly extensively for prey capture, courtship and aggressive interactions. The posterior eyes give the spiders vision above them and behind them and are significant in avoiding predation or capture.

Hello, I found your site and all of its amazing spider photos. I went through quite a few but have not yet found something that matches the spider we saw today. See attached photos. It ran in from the outside when we opened our basement door. After some pictures, I sent it back out and took a couple more on the driveway. I've never seen one this big around here before (Brentwood, TN). Any idea what it is? Thank you! Charles

Found this lady on my bamboo... I've been coming home at night to webbing across my drive in about the area I found her... I'm not sure if she's the one spinning 15 foot webs at night, I'm in southwest Florida. I though this might be a jumping spider, or a wolf spider but could not find a picture that matched, quite right... Thanks Keri

Hello, We (unfortunately haha) have several of these guys and gals roaming around our house and garden outside. Every one I've seen has been quite large with a leg diameter larger than a quarter, quite possibly a half dollar. Can you help identify it/them? I was thinking it belongs to the grass spider/weaver family? It's a dark brown/almost black with a cream colored vertical stripe. Best, Brittany

These are two spiders I have found in USA, in Missouri, east of Kansas City. The first looks like a female wolf spider in a way but does not have the back markings so I was not sure. It was the size of a medium tarantula tho...I have seen a million wolf spiders living in this area but never one of this size/coloration so I was wanting to know if I was correct. The second spider I found I have no clue about, it was on the side of a building I was working on. If you could get me any info on what these spiders are I would really appreciate it! Thank you, Nathan

Hi Glen, We recently moved to Costa Rica from the US and I came across this guy in my laundry room. He was about fist size and I'm thinking he might be some kind of Wolf Spider. What do you think?

Hi Glen - I have been trying to identify a spider I saw on a hike in Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica. I believe it is a wolf spider, but wanted to try to verify. Attached is a picture (higher resolution available if needed). Thanks in advance and happy holidays. Adam
