Huntsman Spider…I think
I love your website! I check it everyday, it is by far the best website I ever have been too about insects (and arachnids!) My friend was in Miyajima, Japan. This picture is of it on the bathroom wall she said that they saw it at night, and when I did a little reasearch on it I found the Huntsman Spiders were nocternal..is that true? I hope you can use this picture!
As you know, we have not posted in several days since we were away with the students. This is a Huntsman Spider, but we are not sure of the species. The markings are sure beautiful.
