Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas, USA November 10, 2013 Size: 23mm BL
Here is a male I had for awhile that finally died. He lost a pedipalp and a leg during one of his many breedings with females. I assumed it was a Tigrosa aspersa but the ventral does not appear to look like those of aspersa. I will say that this male was MUCH bigger than the majority of the wolf spider males. I used this as a potential reference for T. aspersa for it is the largest Tigrosa species.
