yellow star-fish like spider
Dear Mr. Bug Man,
I am wondering if you could please help me identify this rather large and intrusive spider. He was found on the inside of my 17 month old’s bedroom window screen. We live in Massachusetts. Thank you,
Jenn Romano

Hi Jenn,
This is a harmless Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira. The photos we have received of this species in the past are a decidely different color pattern, but we did locate a matching individual on BugGuide.
