Reply: That is a harmless orb weaving spider, probably an Araneus sp. Nathan

17 July, 2006:
Hello,
I found this spider in my daisy's. I was wondering if you could tell me what type it is? I live in the desert in Northern Nevada. Thank you, Tammera

17 July, 2006:
Hello, I found this spider outside my door in Grass Valley California . It kind of looks like a brown Recluse, But it isnít located in or around Arkansas . So I was wondering if you could help me identify this spider, because I would like to know if this spider is dangerous to my family. Please E-mail me back when you can identify it.  Thanks so muchÖ Dan Mahoney

..


Reply: That might be an Araneus
bicentenarius, "giant lichen orbweaver." Nathan

13 July, 2006:
Maybe you could identify this spider. The body looks as if it covered in bark (scale like covering), approximately 2 Ĺ"-3" long found in Springfield, Missouri, USA.
Thanks,
Brian

..

Reply: Looks like a fishing spider. Please note that photos for identifying spiders should be clear and a top view to help with checking patterns, eyes etc.
13 July, 2006:
Hello! We discovered this beauty in my mother's garage in Niagara Falls, NY. We had never seen it before and think it snuck home with them from their camping trip up in the 1,000 Islands area of Upstate NY. We are trying to deicide if it is a wolf spider or a fishing spider or possibly a female hobo spider. You can zoom in on the photo and see what looks like 3 eyes on it's right side, and the coloring is quite pretty as well. Thanks for any input you may have! ~Missy W.

..

Reply: That is some sort of Gnaphosidae, aka "ground spiders." It is not dangerous. Nathan

10 July, 2006:
Hi. This spider crawled on me last night. I looked through the pictures, but I don't think I found a match. I am in the Dallas/Ft Worth TX area. Please help. Thanks

..

Reply: Probably some sort of orb weaver.

8 July, 2006:
I have attached a photo of a spider. I have an infestation of these indoors near a window, coming in and now throughout a room killing
several a day. What is it? Also suspect a bite.

Ryan
 

..

Reply: I would be wary of this one as it could belong to the tegenaria family of which hobo spiders, which are dangerous, are a member.

5 July, 2006:
Hi, I get these spiders quite often in my NJ apartment, can you identify it, is it dangerous? Thanks. Jamie McLarnon

Reply: I think this looks more like a huntsman to me.

28 June, 2006:
It took me 3 large drinks to recover from this face to face.
I emailed somebody who was nice enough to say they thought is was a: " Harmless male fishing spider of the genus Dolomedes, Family Pisauridae" The outstretched legs were well over 4" Enjoy.Tj  Phoenix, AZ

19 June, 2006:
Good day,  I have been a fan of your site for years now and have come across a spider that I have never seen before. I was in my basement here in north eastern Ohio and I was spraying for ants around my furnace. As I was spraying this guy ran out through the spray and has since died. He is larger than any other spider we have seen in our house and we have seen MANY. Our house was built in 1900 so it isn't as sealed off as I would like but it works for now. I didn't mean to kill this guy but the ant spray he ran through didn't like him. I tried to get the pictures as clear as I could. If there is anything you could tell me about it please let me know. I don't use outlook so if you wouldn't mind emailing me back at my other address that would be much appreciated.  I would also like to thank you for taking the time to read this and for any information you might have. Thank You and Have a Nice Day Vincent

..

Reply: This spider and the one above could be one of several spiders which are very hard to tell apart. Wolf spiders, some huntsman and fishing spiders are similar and can only be distinguished by their eyes - fishing spiders have 2 rows and wolf spiders have 3 rows. When sending in photos, please try and ensure they show details like this to help with identification.

Glen,
Found this as I was ready to step in my shed in Wichita, Kansas on June 16, 2006. Not a good day not to have shoes on.

18 June, 2006:
While cleaning our back porch I moved a folding chair and this mud case fell off busting open the case and scattering these spiders. Some are still in the mud case; some look mature; some look juvenile. I thought they were all dead but when touched, some would move their legs a little. Some had bright yellow and black abdomens with reddish legs with black and cream banding and the others had tan and light yellow abdomens with sort of reddish legs with some banding. They were all from the same case which is what has me so puzzled unless it the difference in the males and females. Iíve never seen any like them and would appreciate help in identifying them. Charlotte, Jacksonville , TX

Reply: The black and yellow ones are marbled orb weavers, not sure of the rest but they are all victims of the mudwasp who collects these spiders and paralyses them as food for the young wasps!!glen

Reply: Looks like a whip scorpion.  http://www.kendall-bioresearch.co.uk/whipscorp.htm

13 June, 2006:
hey, my name is joshua and my wife and i were leaving our appartment when we saw this thing in the dirt out side. it is still alive even though its legs are tucked under it self. At first glance i thought it was a scorpion, but after closer reveiw i thought that it may be some sort of solfugid. im not sure about all of the charachteristics to determine or decipher its classification. i do know that this thing has some sort of long tail approx. an inch or inch and a half. i dont know if if you can see it in the pics. please e mail me back. thanx joshua

I live in Plymouth, MA and I seem to have a spider problem. I see at least one of these a day in my house. Sometimes 2 or 3 per day. One  morning there were 3 all within a ten foot radius at once. Is it  normal to see this many? I have done some research online and would
just like to get some sort of confirmation. I believe they are sac  spiders? To be honest this scares me because I have also read that
they are the most common cause of spider bites in the US. They seem  to confine themselves to corners and where the walls meet the  ceilings, but have also been caught crawling across walls and  ceilings. They also fall towards the floor when disturbed. Are these  dangerous and should I be concerned? How can I minimize their  existence inside my house?
Thanks, Kevin Olson, Plymouth, MA

Reply: Yes, that is a Cheiracanthium
species sac spider, which ARE medically significant. Nathan

..

Reply: That is a harmless wolf spider, possibly a species of Hogna. Nathan
 

13 June, 2006:
Hi, I was thankful to find your site. My daughter found this one by the pool but it is the third of its kind in one week. One in the house garage and one in the shop garage as well. I think by looking at the pictures it seems to be a wolf spider. I am really freaked out by its size. I would like to make sure it is not going to carry off my cat or one of my kids. Is it indeed a wolf? As you can see, it looked different under a different light. They are not super clear but interesting non-the-less. Thank you for your informational site Stephanie

..

Reply: That is an Agelenopsis "grass spider," which is harmless.Nathan

12 June, 2006:
I found this spider on top of a 4 foot bush in our yard. I have never seen  this type of spider before and the web of this spider is not the usual  spider web. I would appreciate it if you could let me know what kind it is and if it is dangerous. Thank you. Bon

..

12 June, 2006:
I stumbled upon your page while trying to identify this spider and ended up reading almost everything on it! You have a very impressive collection of information and what seems to be a very well informed community built. I realize that you will not necessarily help me identify this spider, I would like it if you, or another user of your page to assist me, or point me in the direction of an answer. I live in Madison, Wisconsin and have been finding these all over my house since the beginning of spring. I have lived here all my life and have never seen these before. Every time I see them, they have taken a position with legs "poised to pounce" and are sitting still. I have never seen them in a web, and when I capture them, they see me coming and appear to be bracing for impact or a fight. They are all almost the same size, measuring about the diameter of a quarter and are mostly a semi-gloss black with brown banded legs and brown patterns on top and bottom of both main body parts and small hairs covering the entirety of all legs.. The pictures I am sending were taken on my 7month old son's high chair tray, which of course made me wonder if this species is poisonous or any danger to my son. Any help would be appreciated!!! - Jesse

Reply: You have a crab spider of the genus
Xysticus, and they are all completely safe and benign. Nathan

..

Reply: Hi Glen, the juvenile spiders from June 11 are not black widows. They most
likely are juvenile araneus diadematus or common garden spider. I see these every spring. They are very good to have in your garden as they catch many small insects like flying aphids when they start building their orb webs. Dan, Bothell Wa, USA

11 June, 2006:
Hi Glen,  I was wondering wheather this is a blackwidow juviniles?  thanks

Reply: This is an immature brown
widow spider ( Latrodectus geometricus ). Like their relatives the black widows, these are dangerous! Definitely not a safe "house spider." Nathan

 

3 June, 2006:
This spider is about the size of a nickel. You can zoom in several times and still have a clear pic. I donít know what it is, maybe a house spider? Enjoy!

Hello! i happened across your website this evening when i was trying to identify a certain spider that i photographed today. it is about two inches long by legs, and i've seen it around my house before. this one was found in a cemetary. i am from santa rosa california and i was just wondering if you could tell me what it is? judging by the shape and swollen palps i was thinking it was at least a male. thanks,

Reply: Can't tell the exact species, but
that looks like a Dolomedes sp. fishing spider. Nathan

 June, 2006:
Hello, Hopefully Ive come the right place, I got your email address of a spider website. Can you tell me what kind of spider this is? I find them quite often in and around my home and wanted to make sure they are not dangerous since I have a young child. I believe it to be some kind of wolf spider, but wasn't 100% on it. This particular one is somewhat larger than the other ones I have found, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for you time. Jim

Reply: First one could be a yellow sac spider: http://www.srv.net/~dkv/hobospider/yellosac.html and they can cause a painful bite. the next one is a daring jumping spider and they aren't dangerous. Last one could be a steatoda of some sort: http://www.nicksspiders.com/nicksspiders/steatodabipunctata.htm
30 May, 2006:
Good morning, I live near Burlington, Vermont, USA. Love the sight, though it gives me the willies like you wouldn't believe. I found three spiders recently, and would like to know if anyone can help with identifying them. (Please feel free to eliminate any pics you feel are extraneous.) Sorry about the quality of these two, it was full dark, and I was releasing the next spider, when I saw this one. Sitting on a 2x6 board ... .5" - .75" longish

Reply: Could be one of a few spiders - a tegenaria, wolf spider or fishing spider. Bit hard tot ell from the photo.

29 May, 2006:
Hello. I live in Calgary, Canada and have recently found 2 of these spiders. I would say that they are about the size of a quarter. They almost look like a fishing spider, but I just do not think that it is a fishing. I have looked all over the internet, but I cannot find anything that looks like it. I would say that they it is about just a little bit larger then the size of a one dollar coin (about 3cm). Im sure I will find more in the comming days, and I would love to know what spiders im living with in the basement. Thank you, Rick

Reply: That's not its butt, it's an egg sac that it is carrying around. Most uncomfortable looking. Probably a fishing spider, a bit hard to tell from the pic.

HI there i came across your site trying to look up a spider i found in my garden. I live in Qualicum British Columbia and i found this spider with a turquoise butt and his body is brown. I thought this spider was very unusually looking since his butt was bright blue. So i  just wonder if you could tell me anything about this spider, if its poisonous or not? I attached a picture with the e-mail. So write me back when you find something out. I will keep it justincase it is poisous. Thank you very much Cassandra

Reply: Could be a wolf spider or a funnel weaver/grass spider.

16 May, 2006:
Please help me identify this type of spider. These past few weeks these spiders have decided to invade my house. I have encountered 2 today alone. I would like to know what kind they are before my 6 year old son comes back from his Grandma's house in a week.
Thank you, Jacki

20 May, 2006:
I'm convinced. I just looked up some stats on the Nursery Web Spider in an insect guide I had and the information is pretty much exact. One thing that pretty much sealed it was that it mentions NW Spiders have eight eyes in two rows and while the bottom row is straight across, the top row curves downward in a "U" shape, which is exactly what the spider I caught had.  Awesome, I can stop shivering in fright now Thank you so much, Glen. ~Joe
19 May, 2006:
Hey Glen,
Could you tell me what kind of spider this is. I live in South Jersey and I found it on the side of my house next to my door.
At first I thought it was a fishing spider because of the long and pointy-backside plus since we have a fish pond next to the house, but when I looked up the stats for the fisher, the description didn't fit. Maybe some type of wolf? The circle in the picture labeled "spider25" is the outline of a quarter. My sister thought it was a recluse but I've never seen a recluse with an abdomen that pointy. If I remember correctly, recluse usually have rounder backsides. Anyway, see what you think and hopefully I'll hear back from you. ~Joe

Reply: Could be a nursery web weaver, they have that colouring and body shape.

..
If Rick Vetter from UCR is correct in his research, Iím pretty confident that it is not a brown recluse ( http://spiders.ucr.edu/recluseid.html ). I however am still very concerned with identifying this spider. Your help is greatly appreciated. Regards, Terrance
16 May, 2006:
Hi Glen,
I have a few much better pictures of the spider that I am concerned about. As you remember, the spider in question was mangled when I last tried to identify it. This specimen is still alive and I would like to send it to someone who could positively identify it. Here are some pictures to start with. As always, your help is very much appreciated.  Terrance

I found this spider on the floor of our family room last night (it is in the basement). We live in the suburbs north of Baltimore, Maryland. From looking at your site I think it may be either a Fishing Spider or a Huntsman Spider. I'm not really sure. If it's a fishing spider, the closest body of water is the Loch Raven Reservoir, about 5 miles away from our house...although we are much higher in elevation than the reservoir, a couple hundred feet, I'd say. Whatever he is, I did not get much sleep last night thinking he might have "friends" elsewhere in the house. Do these types of spiders travel alone or in groups? And are they dangerous? This one seemed about 3 inches across in total. I normally don't worry about spiders too much, but this one really freaked me out. I have never seen anything that HUGE in person before. Any help in identifying it or advice on keeping more of them from returning is extremely welcome and much appreciated. Feel free to use the attached photo on your site or share it with others. Thanks, Jennifer M. Jewell, CDT

Reply: I think this is a huntsman.

Reply: I don't think so, it looks more like a huntsman. The wolf spider, fishing spider and huntsman are often confused as they look very similar.

Reply from Becky: I found an answer for this question: They are the Wheel Bug Nymph - http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/trees/wheel_bug_05.jpg
Reply: I don't think these are spiders, I think they are some sort of wasp, judging by the nest and the fact that they only have 6 legs and 3 body parts, not 2 like a spider does.

Hi Glen,
Iím a member of a Photography forum, and one of my fellow photographers (I think heís US based) has just posted a picture of a spider, which Iím not sure what it is. My first thoughts were a mouse spider of some sort, but the palps arenít big enough. The thread is located at:
Unfortunately, you wonít be able to see any of the posted images, not without creating an account and logging in, so Iíve included a copy of the image as an attachment to this email. Any idea on what it might be? Dave

Hi, Hopefully this is the right email address to use. I only found your site today when my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to find out what this little spider I found in my pool (in Sydney, Australia) was. I didn't actually notice it when I took the picture - it wasn't until I transferred the files to my computer that I saw it - and was struck by the colouring; gold-ish thorax with a purple abdomen. I got my friend to help me hunt down this spider on google but so far we haven't been able to nail it. My friend thinks it could be a juvenile Funnel-web, though. Any ideas? I've included 1 photo with an enlarged inset. The original photo was taken on the 9th of January, 06. Thanks for any help!

Dear Ms. Crew; I was trying to identify a spider I found and photographed this am in the kitchen. Well I have idíed it generally and was looking for a more finite classification and happened on this site. At http://www.rochedalss.eq.edu.au/wolf.htm the wolf spider photos will not open; they are merely little red xís in a box. In fact the same is true of several of the pages, but not all the photos, as some do appear. I saw that you created the page and wondered if you could correct this or if, having done the page you have moved on and it isnít your worry any more. Thanks for any help you may be able to offer.

Reply: That could also be a male Kukulcania hibernalis, the "southern house spider"--which is harmless, and should also be in your area. See this page:

Hi Love your site! I live in southern AZ on the Maricopa/Pima county line. There are so many spiders, scorpions, camel spiders, lizards, snakes and other creepy-crawly critters here, it keeps me on my toes -- literally. I haven't seen this spider on your site; perhaps I missed it. I believe it is an Arizona Brown Spider, cousin of the Brown Recluse (which do not live in AZ).

We recently built a new home and moved in just last December (2005) We live in northern Indiana just a few hundred yards south from the Michigan state line. Shortly after moving in we found 1 of these on the wall in our garage. A couple weeks later we found 2-3 in the garage. Since then weíve found at least 20 more. Last weekend alone we found 10 in 1 day (all in the garage). And have since found 3 more inside the house. I managed to capture this one and take some close ups. It is slightly larger then a quarter dollar. As I have children and pets (and donít care for spiders myself) Iím wondering if you can tell me what species you think it is? A local exterminator said that it might be a hobo spider. But I think it looks more like a wolf spider. A friend of mine said itís just an average garden spider and is harmless. So now Iím thoroughly confused. Any ideas? Thanks, John

are related to the widows, but are not considered dangerous. Nathan

I have this type of spider that is all around the house; I have no idea what kind it is, even if it's poisonous. This is a baby; the larger ones I've seen are 10 times the size. The scale in size to the dime is accurate.

Can you tell me what this little nasty is? (Probably not so nasty to you, but he's got me pretty freaked out and thinking he's crawling on me, so for now he's pretty nasty! This is the second of these I've found. They were both sitting motionless until I messed with them, and then they began rearing at me and this one bit the edge of the envelope I was using to scoop him up with. They've both been about the size of a dime, are very flat, and scurry sideways, forward, and backward. I was thinking huntsman, but I don't know. Any insight? They've got me very worried.

Hi there. I found this spider in my clothes. I had just pulled my shirt on and at the bottom thought there was some black cotton tangled up so I went to pick it off and it was a spider! I showed my hubby and he hadn't seen anything like it before, and being arachnophobic wanted it killed straight away, but I being the curious person I am put it in a glass jug and examined it, took pictures and am now sending them to you. It was about 5cm big when stretched out. Unfortunately my husband took the spider and killed it. But I would like to know if you can tell me what it is Yvette, Rockingham, Western Australia.

Reply: Probably just a garden orb weaver that got caught up in the clothes.
