Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this littl guy in a basement, I’ve seen quite a few down there before and I was curious what kind they are. He/she was a little bigger than the size of a US quarter. Thanks!

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Wolf Spider, looks like Tigrosa helluo.

I suspect this is an immature male but I can’t see it well enough to be sure. Enlarged pedipalps (leg-leg appendages near the spider’s mouth) are enlarged on male spiders.

The first link is an immature male – one molt from maturity, this one is a mature male:
