Hi, and welcome to the site. this spider is a male huntsman spider,Sparassidae family, Heteropoda venatoria species.
In spite of their size, these are not a medically significant spider, I welcome them.
RI seems rather north of their range, that extends east Texas through the gulf states, Florida north to north Carolina. Perhaps a hitchhiker if anyone ha been south.
Hi, was this found in Rhode Island or is that just where you are located? Location needs to be where the spider was found.
gorgeous one, ours aren’t that pretty
