Hey guys,
Has anyone got an idea what species this spider could be? It's about 4 inches in legspan, and was seen in Surinam (in the rainforest). It came walking out of someone's t-shirt after swimming...
greetz,
Joost

Ctenidae

It is most likely a species of wandering spider (family: Ctenidae). Probably of the genus Ctenus or Cupiennus. The wanderers are the largest of the true spiders.
