Comments & ID Thoughts

Found this big guy a night after finding a huge house centipede dead in the exact same spot I found the spider the next day?!? Very weird perhaps it was hunting lol either way this is 1 of 2 that I have found now and the first was much larger could this be a sign of a problem I might need to handle and exactly what kind of spiders are these?

This one is also upside down. I do think it’s probably the same.

I think they are funnel weavers, family Agelenidae.

Large spinnerets are consistent with a funnel weaver.

No, not a parson spider. Your spiders have banding on their legs.

Yes House Centipedes hunt spiders. I have one killing my house spiders. Hopefully a spider will win a fight. I saw one of the centipedes kill a False Widow by using its legs to pin the spider before killing it. The spider curled up like yours almost instantly. Maybe your spider was able to get a bite into the centipede before dying.
