Hi, saw this spider today, thought I show e'rybody
Nice wolf spider (Lycosidae).
Absolutely gorgeous spooder
What a beauty!
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.
Location is south Vancouver Island.
Ill find some other species to photo.
Armadillium vulgare photobomb!
Thanks to all for the replies.
Hey here's another spider.
Please keep snapping photos
I love it!
Todays find, good size one Id say.
I see you!
Come on out...
Wow!!! The abdomen on that one is lovely!
It is pretty nice pattern and colour.
Any idea what species it is?
I'm looking into it.
Anybody out there have an idea of the species?
edit: I think its the invasive European Giant House spider.
Pretty sure Ive seen these at work as well
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.
Thank you for the info. I will try to get a ventral pic next week. Theres plenty of specimens there.
Wee jumping spider in my car
