Hi there, could you please help identify this spider, found in Scottburgh, kzn, South Africa.
Based on the eye arrangement pictured on BugGuide, we are confident that this is a Wolf Spider in the family Lycosidae. There are some excellent Wolf Spider images on iSpot. A large Wolf Spider might bite a human if it is carelessly handled, but Wolf Spiders are not considered dangerous.
Thanks so much for the ID of the little wolf spider.
Appreciate the speedy answer 🙂
