Comments & ID Thoughts

Found in my bed at 3am. Not bitten. My best guess is wolf spider but that doesn't seem right.

She’s in family Pisauridae, the Fishing and Nursery Web Spiders. She might be a color morph of Pisaurina mira. They are similar in size, colors, and behavior to Wolf Spiders. The eyes are arranged differently on their heads and they have flatter posture. They are active hunters rather than web spiders. I hope you redirected it to the outdoors to continue its quest.
