Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was found i a crate of bananas from South America. Please help identifying it. My guess is that it is from either Columbia or Ecuador.

Hi, this species is a pantropical spider so could be one of your locals. In Japan they just call these house spiders, cane spiders in Hawaii, brown huntsman in US.
Harmless sort,one of my favorites.
Their white oustache gives them away.
