spider on the wall - Amaurobius ferox

spider on the wall - Amaurobius ferox
Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA
February 4, 2015
Size: 1.5"
Found this spider creeping on the wall of my living room. It's really cold here in Philly now and this is the first of this kind of spider I've seen in my house. I caught it very easily and let it outside for it to hunt.

Moved from ID Request.

Maybe Amaurobius ferox


I think your size is off, shouldn't include legs.

 
gotcha
Thanks for the info, I'll remember to only include the body measurement next time.
