This appears to be the genus without the split eye Ascaloptynx. Dark individual. Very hairy.

for the info. Helped ID my images.

You have a lot of images on bugguide. Just saw the one of your wolf bitten finger. Naughty, naughty. I have taken care of a few wolf bites on the feet of sandal-wearing gardeners. One even brought me the squashed spider. They are never severe. Though they usually scare the hell out of the patient. They all think, seriously, that they are going to die.
