2 of these guys ran into my new living room. They were very fast.
Confirmed wolf spider.
By whom? The stance isn’t right for a Wolf Spider. Without seeing the markings my guesses are Parson Spider or Grass Soider.
We had a pest control company come out. We just moved in and they were everywhere outside and inside. We have a toddler so decided to just have it taken care of. I did not think it was a wolf either but I am not an expert.
Thanks for answering my question. Exterminator techs aren’t necessarily experts on spider species. It is more important that they can identify insects.
In your region with those spinnerets this would be a Grass Spider/Funnel Weaver, Agelenopsis sp. (filed)
The filing didn’t work.
Got it, thanks. I don’t know what happened there.
Can we file to subspecies level? In our photos for Trichonephila inaurata, I think the two photos are of different subspecies that go by different common names. One is “Golden” and the other is “Red-legged,” but we don’t have them by different names or indicate the subspecies difference.
I don’t think so, I remember trying for a while with Metacyrba and there was always something wrong with it.
It looks like I did make one for Metacyrba taeniola similis, but it doesn’t show in the taxonomy listing or species page – it’s not easy to find so I’ve been reluctant to make others.
That is weird. It has the taxonomy breakdown right above it, yet it isn’t in Taxonomy. Here’s another thing to add to the list. As genetic testing progresses many species are being split up and I think the subspecies level is being used more often. Even our own Latin name is often Homo sapiens sapiens. Some researchers differ on whether there were other subspecies of our species.
There’s got to be some way to do it but it’s not intuitive and I haven’t heard anything about site updates in a long while.
