    think that might be some sort of lycosidae

    You might be right, though i think her abdomen patterns look Dolomedes..

    It's a wolf spider, check the eye pattern

    Male D. albineus. I thought this guy was mature prior to molt since I saw boxing gloves. However, post molt he is a lot leggier and the coloring is that of the mature albineus female I saw last year. Do true spiders show boxing gloves prior to ultimate molt?

    Nice pics, man. D. albineus is a really great looking spider.

    Yes. I've noticed in the male widows I've kept and some small wolf spider species we have running around at work that the palpal emboli start showing a molt or two before maturity. Until maturity they're a light color; after maturity they're dark, almost black. Never seen a mature male Dolomedes though so.....

    ive had some central american wandering spiders in the past,and the males had their boxing gloves already before reaching maturity. but then again it's not will all true spiders i gather.hmm don't know.
