Was in a wood pile that was covered in a tarp for the past couple of months.
I believe this is likely a male Olios giganteus
A male golden huntsman. https://bugguide.net/node/view/231148/bgimage https://www.buzzfeed.com/jennaguillaume/reasons-the-huntsman-spider-is-your-new-best-friend?utm_term=.tcVDkAkXZo#.jhvydedGAM One of my favorite spiders, Welcome to he site.
Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Giant Crab/Huntsman Spider (Sprassidae) in the genus Curicaberis.
Thanks everybody! My boyfriend told me he found a brown recluse at work, I kindly and quickly let him know how highly unlikely it was. Unfortunately, I couldn’t declare victory until I got a positive ID on his suspect. I feel like Google really dropped the ball on this one by only showing the female version of this spider in the search results. So thank you all for your help with the ID!
Well,I was close but dropped the ball myself, I overlook these,the difference is gold huntsman have near black mouth parts and a mottled abdomen, yours has distinguishable chevrons and light mouth parts. Still cool spiders.
