About 2 cm from tip of front leg to tip of back leg
Spotted on the sleeve of my jacket - eek! - that had been sitting inside my house.
Thanks for the ID, elhennawy! I can't find much info about this species. Why do you call it the "greatest mother"?
The greatest mother in the animal kingdom, Stegodyphus dufouri.
Yes, I'm actually excited now to find spiders like this! But I still prefer them outdoors. :-)
I love it when spottings present themselves like that!
