Hi all
Here's a spider I caught in my shed for work (phobia therapy) for an exposure session. I haven't caught this kind before and want to make sure it's not harmful. I tried to look online and couldn't figure it out.

I live in the US, PNW region and live in the woods.

Thanks for any help!

Cool! Thank you. Makes sense as I did catch him in a cool funnel web. Usually I find little orb weavers in my garden or daddy long legs. This thing does look a bit like a hobo spider but I don't know much so I wanted to check.

Are you referring to it being in the same species as a hobo? Just want to make sure I'm not bringing a hobo into a therapy session! I looked at pictures and the legs look quite different from what I could tell, but you all know more than I.

I'll set it free tomorrow afternoon and he can find a new place to make a web.
