Comments & ID Thoughts

I am wholly ignorant about spider identification, as a forewarning.

This spider was found in my house this AM. In the photo provided I have lightened the background colors,in person it appeared darker brown. The item on which it is photographed measures 2.25" in width (full width shown). It was on a wooden item and that item had been transported within the previous day to northern Wisconsin as well.

I am sure this will be a very easy identification, although my photo may make it more challenging.


Thank you!!!
