I agree with John Apple for Tegenaria sp.

Be careful, as that may be a Hobo (Tegenaria agrestis)!

Maybe TheTyro will see this and she could give you her opinion of it. She has an uncanny knack for ID'ing these! :) S.

lol, I just found one of these last night. I'd definitely say it's Tegenaria agrestis too, but like always, you can never be absolutely positive without a microscope and a professional's analysis :) Really pretty one ya got there too. :D

Yeah..don't think I'll be breeding my MM Tegenaria gigantea(not like there are any females around anyway). Are they as dangerous as Tegenaria grestis?

No. Oddly enough, only T. agrestis --among all the many Tegenaria species--is believed to have toxic potential. I have never heard of T. gigantea ever being suspected of having any meaningful toxicity. I would treat T. gigantea as harmless.
