Hogna Wolf Spider Identification - Tigrosa grandis - male

Hogna Wolf Spider Identification - Tigrosa grandis - Male
Topeka/ At Washburn Rural High School Hallway , Kansas, USA
October 9, 2011
Size: 21mm
Hi, this is my first submission on this website, I obtained this Hogna wolf spider in the hallways of Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, KS. It has a lost leg in the picture. I would like to know if anyone has any idea what species this is. I was guessing maybe H. carolinensis or H. helluo or possibly H. aspersa, but I am guessing more on the two former ones.

Images of this individual: tag all

Other Pictures
I was looking through some older saved files and found two other photos of this individual. Unfortunately, I never seemed to have taken a ventral of it. It does show slight resemblance to this one I posted two years later:


Also, the photos were taken on an old camcorder so the quality is extremely low. They can be frassed if need be (or I can delete them if told). Thanks!

Moved from Tigrosa aspersa.
I'm having doubts about this one, it's looking more like T. grandis to me now.

 
No worries
I just found it odd that it bred with a T. aspersa. I know crossbreeding is possible in creating offspring for she dropped a fertile sac the next spring.

 
Yeah ...
I always wonder how I'm supposed to recognize a crossbreed.

ID tentatively based on this spider's mate:

Welcome Jimmy Wu
If you can provide a view of the ventral side, 'belly' of the spider we might be able to tell you the species.

 
Thanks, I will post it later,
Thanks, I will post it later, I will put a link down as a reply.

 
Ventral
If you still have this one adding a ventral view would be helpful.

 
Unfortunately I do not.
I let him mate with the other female you ID'ed as a T. aspersa but that's about it.
