Hey bugman,
I found this Spider in my boat in the back yard. The boat has been sitting for most of the summer. I was getting ready to clean it out so i can store it and i found this Guy. Never seen anything like it. I would say its about the size of a Nickel. I live in Mid Michigan and its early fall. please let me know if you know any info on this spider. Thanks
