Wolf spider

Unknown spider

These photos show a Wolf spider (Family Lycosidae), possibly Tigrosa helluo, spotted along the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows Park.

The eye arrangement gives away that it is a Wolf spider (Lycosidae). The yellow stripe and lack of markings on the abdomen are consistent with Tigrosa helluo. (Formerly Hogna.) Source Credit: Sarah Rose, BugGuide group on Facebook.
