I took a photo of a spider about .75” long in Santa Rosa, California, recently and would like to identify it. Can you help? Thanks

Hi, Daniel –
Thanks so much for your help in identifying these creatures. This is a fabulous service. Do you know any local resource in my area where I could find help with local creatures so I don’t have to bug you (so to speak) on a regular basis? I live in Santa Rosa, CA, about 50 miles north of San Francisco.
Thanks again,
Glenn McCrea

Hi Glenn,
We ran out of time yesterday, and though we wanted to post this photo of a Wolf Spider dragging her Egg Sac from her spinnerets, we had to leave for work.  You are welcomed.  Your photographs were all quite nice.  We would suggest your local natural history museum for assistance. Nearby universities should also have entomology departments.  As long as you are understanding that we cannot answer all of our mail, you are free to continue sending us identification requests.  The Wolf Spider is our featured Bug of the Month for October 2011.
