Funnelweaver (agelenid) for sure. Tegenaria, Eratigena or Malthonica spp., members of these genera seemingly get reclassified often because they’re so similar. Worst case scenario, this is a hobo spider (Eratigena agrestis), whose venom might be serious.

Thank you for helping out with these identifications for the site, SifuSnips856. Fortunately, the venom of Hobo Spiders is greatly exaggerated most of the time. Their venom is not considered medically significant to vertebrates. This spider is a False Wolf Spider (Zoropsis sp., tentatively Z. spinimana). These spiders are also harmless to vertebrates.

Thanks! I’d never seen one of these, meanwhile I’ve come across quite a few funnelweavers.
