Comments & ID Thoughts

I have the iNaturalist app that I use mostly but it is giving me conflicting results.
At first glance I was thinking wolf spider. But I then noticed that the entire body underneath is black.

Hi, I agree this is a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae). Hogna antelucana. Many species of Wolf Spider have black ventrals.
