Eastern parson spider

7194.         I would like to know what kind/species of spider this is. I live in Quebec Canada and I need to make sure it’s not an infestation. Gatineau, QC Canada

Number 7194.  This is an eastern parson spider, Herpyllus ecclesiasticus, in the family Gnaphosidae (ground spiders). They may enter buildings while hunting for their prey, but will not become an infestation. Reportedly, they can have a painful but not dangerous bite.
