Comments & ID Thoughts

Trying to identify this spider that was running across my kitchen floor. May have come in in an Amazon box or from the woods near my home. Have never seen this size or type near my home in the 20 yrs here.

Hi, it’s difficult to be sure what this is from this image. I think it is most likely a Wolf Spider, maybe Tigrosa helluo (they’re really brown but might appear black in poor lighting). Something weird seems to be going on where it is white at the base of the legs though. It looks as though there is dust or webbing stuck to it, or possibly even fungus growning on it.
