    LadyDreamer, Spyder and anyone else who owns/likes spiders

    Late last night, my fiance was working and saw something out of the corner of his eye. He looked and saw a HUGE spider!

    He put a cup on top of it and went to charge his camera.

    He got a few nice shots and hopefully someone will be able to identify him.

    He believes it a Funnel Web Grass Spider() He thought at first that it could be a Brown Recluse, but he's not 100% sure.

    So any tips would be helpful.

    Oh, forgot to add, that we live in Northwestern New Jersey

    It looks just like a Hobo. They are often mistaken for recluse but the recluse (brown fiddler) has a fiddle shape in the center of the body.

    ETA: Oh it's a wolf spider!!! Painful bite, but mostly harmless venom-wise.

    My stilts would have a anti-spider-crawling-up thingy on it.

    I feel a bit relieved that we know what it is.
    I'm even glader (is that a word) that I was not there at the time and was at home.

    Tom put Aunt Edna outside in the bushes.
