Hi,
I live in Portland Oregon and today I spotted this little dude outside trying to crawl into the garage. I’d say he was the size of a dime.
Can’t figure out what he is!

Dear Sarah,
This BugGuide image is nearly identical to your Woodlouse Hunter,
Dysdera crocata, is “The only member of the family in NA” according to BugGuide.  BugGuide also notes:  “Introduced to North America and widely distributed in the Neartic” and “Primary prey is isopods; hence the large chelicerae and fangs.”
