Unknown Spider - Hogna

Unknown Spider - Hogna
Anthem, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
March 30, 2015
Size: Nearly 5 cm including leg
This could have been a wolf spider; I'm not aware of any flatties with marking as such.

Moved from Hogna antelucana.
Sorry, not sure about this one. The median carapace stripe looks like H. antelucana but the dark patches behind the PLEs look like H. coloradensis.

Moved from Spiders.

Moved from ID Request. It's a wolf. In my experience flatties and wolf spiders don't look that similar. The way flatties hold their legs and their eyes are much different than wolf spiders.
