My brother-in-law spotted this spider as we were laying a stone sidewalk in his yard. Knowing that I had my camera handy, he caught it and I photographed the spider as it was crawling out of the plastic container. I almost always release 'bugs' after I photograph them but for some reason I decided to keep this spider as a specimen to take to this spider expert at our local university for a disection ID. It will probably take several weeks to get that done, so does anyone wish to offer a suggestion in the meantime?
