5655 Hi there, I found this spider stradldling the inside corner of my frontroom wall. I have never seen a spider this size in my house before. What kind of spider is this? I live in Westbank, BC. Thank you for your time and help! Lana
This spider is in the family Agelenidae (funnel weaver/grass spiders). It might be a giant house spider, Eratigena atrica – see http://tinyurl.com/oumh3bf for images and more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
