Spider in Marin Co., California
We found this spider in our house in Marin County, Northern California. We just had some early season rain showers and am wondering what kind of spider this is. The small object in the picture is a bee. Thanks for your help,

Hi Christian,
We are only able to provide you with a general answer. This is one of the primitive Mygalomorphs, the Infraorder that includes Tarantulas, Trapdoor Spiders and Purseweb Spiders. This looks to be a Tarantula. Sorry we can’t be more conclusive.

    The only spider that fits the image and location would be a Calisoga spider (Calisoga longitarsis), I get the males in hordes around my house.
