Hi Bugman, i found the attached picture of the spider in my outside kitchen, wondering if it was a dangerous species and if it nests nearby as i have kids and want to be sure everything is safe.
This appears to us to be a Trapdoor Spider. We have not had any luck matching your image to a specific species. Trapdoor Spiders are harmless and they live in underground burrows. Females rarely leave their underground burrow, but male spiders will travel in search of a mate.
