Wolf Spider

Alopecosa kochi


Brown Wolf Spider with mottled abdomen and light stripe down the thorax. Unfortunately I didn't get a size but I believe it was about 1 cm long. "The female of this species has short banded legs, a broad tan stripe down the center of the carapace and faint paired white/tan spots along opposite sides of the abdomen."


Middle of dirt trail in grassy field. Found from "Southern British Columbia to southern Ontario and Massachusetts, south to Baja California and Texas"

No species ID suggestions

I do not like these creatures at all 😣 I saw one of these in my bathroom once and it was the size of a kindergartner's face so I didn't go back into that bathroom for two weeks and tried to avoid any bathrooms as much as possible haha!
