  6. It's my understanding that Trochosa terricola and Trochosa ruricola are pretty indistinguishable from each other in a dorsal view photo. I am no expert on these, but that's what I've heard from others who've worked with the descriptions.

    Looks good for Eratigena atrica, which is the newish name for the giant house spider.

    Likely Eratigena atrica, but a ventral shot would confirm the species. (Eratigena agrestis can look similar.)

    Both are native to Europe, but they aren't medically significant despite the B.S. about hobo spiders.
