Hi! Was wondering if you could identify this big spider. I am in northwestern Missouri.

Grass Spider

Dear Celina,
We believe this is a Funnel Web Spider in the family Agelenidae, probably a Grass Spider in the genus
Agelenopsis like the one in this BugGuide image.  See BugGuide for more on Funnel Web Spiders.
