Unknown Wolf Spider - Tigrosa helluo - female

Unknown Wolf Spider - Tigrosa helluo - Female
Licking County, Ohio, USA
January 10, 2005
Size: < 1/2in
Found indoors and held captive for photos.

Species identification is nearly impossible with Lycosidae, but I'm hoping someone can at least pick the right genus for this one.

At the moment, a few genera are still not represented by guide pages.

Moved
Moved from Wolf Spiders.
We're still learning how to separate these. Move based on general appearance and is just a best guess. I'm trying to get all the Tigrosas together for further review.

Wolf Spider
Hey man, I found the same type spider in my living room last night I couldn't figure out what it was. My friend said it was too big to be a wolf spider but it looks almost exactly like yours!

Moved from Trochosa.
