I found this in my house this morning. I suspect I know what it is, but would like confirmation.

Thanks,

Dave

Must be a wolf spider. I'm unsure of the specie but its very attractive.

It's a member of the family Gnaphosidae. I'm not sure what species. You can tell it's a Gnaphoide by the cylindrical spinnerets. Wolf spiders typically have short spinnerets.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! I was thinking it might be a brown recluse, but I'm glad I'm wrong.
