Male nursery web spider

7230.       Found this large tan/brown spider on my couch! I think he was under the dog bed I moved to vacuum. He was already not moving much. It has been hot the last couple days, in the low 80s. I live in west Michigan. His body is about 1/2 inch (12.7mm) long and with his legs out he’s just over 1 1/2 inches (38mm). Muskegon, MI. United States

Number 7230.  This most likely is a male nursery web spider, Pisaurina mira; a harmless accidental intruder.  Click here for an image of a live specimen.
