Skinny Guy with Long Hairy legs
June 5, 2010
My kitty found this guy living in my windowsill. He has a tiny body but his long legs make him quite big about – about the size of a silver dollar. He’s light brownish and has little leg hairs. Please help us identify him.

Dear Baja Bug Girl,
We are uncertain as to the identity of your spider, but our best guess is a Funnel Web Spider in the family Agelenidae which is well represented on BugGuide. Your letter did not indicate if there was a web in the windowsill. We hope one of our readers will be able to assist with this identification.
