Comments & ID Thoughts

Caught this wolf spider in June as a teeny baby and raised him to watch him grow. He just molted into sexual maturity and now has this beautiful black pattern on his back but I'm still having a hard time IDing. He is about 25mm including legs. Body is around 12mm long.

Strangely, I found him way up on a closet shelf hiding in a laptop bag. Directly underneath was the entrance to the attic so perhaps he fell from the attic. Don't think he could have climbed up there!
