Comments & ID Thoughts
My husband saw this earlier last week; it was larger than your average Pacific Northwest spider. He ended up spraying it with spider spray as it looked too gnarly to leave it on the sidewalk we see daily during our walks. He said it shrunk with the spider spray. Zoom in on its legs- see the hair? My brother is an ecologist and guessed it was a steatoda nobilis from my description but upon seeing the photo he thought it isn’t at all how he had thought and I should bring it to a specialist to identify it! Someone help? What is this?!
