Comments & ID Thoughts

I found a confirmed brown recluse two weeks ago but it was slightly different than this spider. The legs of the brown recluse were longer and skinnier, and the fiddle shape was clearly defined. I wasn’t sure if the spider picture I submitted is just a younger version, or if it is a completely different spider altogether? Thank you for any help you can provide!

Different altogether … this is a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae), looks like Trochosa sepulchralis. Welcome to Spider ID. 🙂
