I can say with confidence that this isn't P. phalangioides. Furthermore, it's not even a spider, it's a harvestman, which is in a different order entirely.
The general public has given them the same common name, so there is plenty of confusion.
If you could at least change the ID to say Opiliones, that would be nice. This photo is not sufficient to provide any more specific of an ID.
Now that you mention it, I believe it is D. scriptus. I've only seen D. tenebrosus , so I assumed it was just a special specimen.
Thanks for speaking up, otherwise I probably wouldn't have re-evaluated my ID, haha.
I corrected the info already. Take care and post more photos, Machi!
This is not Rabidosa, nor is it a wolf spider, as the only Lycosid genus that spins funnel webs is Sosippus.
This is a true funnel weaver in the Agelenidae family. The genus is most likely Agelenopsis. See the ID suggestion for more info, and please update the spotting info.
This certainly isn't a wolf spider. James' ID is totally wrong. Please remove it.
On a more respectful note, this is not P. undatus, ForestDragon.
People who aren't reasonably experienced with spider identification shouldn't be submitting incorrect and misleading IDs. It's just not right.
