Comments & ID Thoughts

I just took this photo in Mountlake Terrace, Washington. I’m guessing it’s a mouse spider but don’t know much about them.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 You seem to have figured out the ID on your own. They are a kind of Ground Spider (Gnaphosidae) and are an introduced species to the area originally from Europe.
