Aloha
Dear Whatsthatbug,
I’ve recently returned from Oahu, Hawaii, where I found this 3 inch web-less spider sitting still behind a door for a few days. It caught my attention because of its size, and because it has, to me, the likeness of a Hawaiian-mask on its back. A quick internet search revealed nothing, to my surprise. What is it?
Thank you!

What an excellent photo of a male Huntsman Spider, Heteropoda venatoria.
