Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Looks like a huntsman with tufted legs. Also looks like a tufted-leg orbweaver, but it is the wrong color and pattern.

Ok – what about a white wolf spider, hogna lenta white? It would explain the hairiness, the tufts, the pedipalps. However, the eyes definitely don’t match, ie, the row on yours of similar sized eyes vs. the stacked variable size eyes of a wolf spider.


Also, what about a huntsman like this: https://backyardbuddies.org.au/backyard-buddies/huntsman-spiders/
Yours doesn’t have all the other light hair but they both have the spiny tufts.


Also I can’t tell the size from the picture, how big is it? If it’s smaller than I think, consider this octopus spider: https://spiderid.com/picture/157812


Hi. I’m just a site visitor that enjoys trying ,and usually failing, to identify these beautiful creatures. I think ure spider is a good match for one of the flatties ..selenops insularis. There’s one on bugguide.net from Florida. Brilliant picture by the way.
