This spider was found in my home on my pillow. The picture is zoomed in but the spider was as big as a half dollar. I thought it might be a Nursery Web Spider but I’m not sure. Please let me know if you are able to help me identify this spider. Thanks!
Your spider is a Rabid Wolf Spider, Rabidosa rabida, or another member of the genus, and you may verify that identification on BugGuide. This large Wolf Spider is not a dangerous species.
