Comments & ID Thoughts

Im not sure what kind of spider this is. Iā€™m mostly curious about what the clear round things on the spider are. From afar it looked gray and visibly hairy if that helps

Lycosidae one of the Wolf Spiders. They are not a medically significant spider.


Hi, welcome to Spider ID. šŸ™‚ As mentioned above you have a Wolf Spider (Lycosidae), the species appears to be Arctosa littoralis.

The clear droplets are hemolymph aka … spider blood. This species isn’t considered to be of medical significance to people. In the future if you see one like this in your home you can safely remove it by placing a cup over it and gently sliding a stiff piece of paper underneath and release it outside.

Edit: note to admin.: species page needed for Arctosa littoralis.
