I think this may be a Hogna radiata…https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/90290327

Not sure at all i am afraid…Hogna radiata tends to be slightly smaller than Lycosa. But only a smidge so that probably doesn’t help much…I found this eye comparison which I think makes the case for Hogna radiata I think….they are for Lycosa found in Spain…but holds for most pictures of other Lycosa I have seen too….the large main eyes tend to be further apart than hogna…a smidge.

Hogna and Lycosa spiders used to be in the same genus once. So they are very similar.
