Funnel Weaver Spider

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 for images and more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
