Wolf Spider

Dear Tiffany,
We believe your Wolf Spider is in the genus
Hogna, possibly Hogna baltimoriana which is described on BugGuide as being:  “Sternum black, chelicerae dark reddish to black. Abdomen yellowish with 5 or 6 chevrons posteriorly. Heart mark brown. Venter black posterior to the genital groove, patellae and coxae dark ventrally. Carapace lacks pale median and submarginal bands.”  This BugGuide image looks somewhat similar to your individual.

Location: Everson, Pennsylvania
