Comments & ID Thoughts

Pisaurina Mira or commonly called the Nursery Web Spider.. is my guess! Size of a quarter. Resembles a Wolf Spider but the eyes look different and so does the lack of white stripe down center.

Exactly! It’s female too. Nursery Web Spiders and Fishing Spiders are in the same family, Pisauridae. They and Wolf spiders have eyes that strongly reflect bright light (like a deer in the headlights) because their eye structure is adapted to amplify low light levels for their nocturnal activities.
