Re: ID
Looks like the ones I sometimes have on my house (in Illinois). One in particular runs inside the outside door frame when it gets cold outside. I think it may be an Agelenopsis (grass spider). If so, they are quite common & harmless. But wait for an expert's opinion.

Yes, grass spider.
This is indeed a grass spider (Agelenidae family), but I'm not positive about which genus. Might well be an immature specimen as well. Nice images.

Thanks Eric and "cookie". I've moved the images to the grass spiders (Agelenopsis) page.
