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.

Alberta's pretty darn close to a frozen wasteland.. or so it seems.

That is the scariest freaking spider I have ever seen!

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.
