Comments & ID Thoughts

cf. Tigrosa helluo, see comments.

What kind of spider is this? I have found at least 30 of these in my (wet, unfinished) basement. They are huge ranging from dime sized to 50cent piece sized!

The eyes help a lot, this is a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae). Tigrosa helluo is a common one that gets big like this but it should have a thin line between the eyes and down the middle of the carapace that I can not make out. I don’t know if that’s because the image is so dark or because it is something else.
