Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was pictured in Minnesota, however it came out of a box from a purchase I made from Amazon. So it's possible it may not be native to MN.

Hi, it may be a Western Parson spider, Herpyllus propinquus. Amazon has a lot of “fulfillment centers” where products are boxed. There is one listed for your state. The Amazon boxes have codes on them that idicate the facility the order was shipped from, in case you’re curious. The codes are listed online. Some of ours say BOS5, which is the Stoughton, MA warehouse, thought there is also a warehouse in our city. So, either way, your spider probably originated in your state.
