Perfect camouflage for the sandy habitat. Hogna sp.?
Fire-suppressed longleaf pine sandhill savanna
Good one. It's narrowed down between the two. Santa Rosa wolf spider is also found in Florida, but the images are the same for both species - https://bugguide.net/node/view/177876 I think my suggestion (common name) should have been this one, not the White sands wolf spider. Hopefully bugguide can clarify.
Thanks Neil! I submitted it to bugguide because I have found a similar looking one in these woods that they put under Arctosa littoralis... Unless you see a defining feature that definitely rules it out?
Beautiful spotting, and really well spotted, Machi. I love this spider :)
