Comments & ID Thoughts
I live in Oregon in the Willamette valley and my neighbor found this spider as she was doing some weeding. It was between a couple of stone slabs seemingly underground or nearly so.
This video doesn’t so it justice - it was very large. The largest spider I’ve ever seen in Oregon. I looked up all known species of spiders I could find for the area with no luck.
The body is flat (in the middle) with a very large abdomen. It wasn’t especially fast but very hairy legs and long web spinner feet (don’t recall the official name)
Research shows that it looks closest to a mouse spider or a funnel web. Neither was supposed to be native to Oregon. I know funnel webs are also deadly venomous.
Please help me identify!
I have additional video/picture if needed.
