Comments & ID Thoughts
this spider was found in a shipping container that was shipped from port of New York to London Gateway port. It doesn't appear to be indigenous to either region. The container where the spider was found was at Shanghai port prior to New York and could have been anywhere in the Pacific Rim. Someone's household goods were the contents of the container in the NY to London traffic lane and the goods belong to a family including a pregnant wife and toddler as well as a pet dog. We think it was an isolated spider that stowed away in the container but we are fearful of infestation. I am trying to identify the species for research purposes.
