Found at the John Bunker Sands wetland nature preserve around noon. I only got the one shot from directly above, too close to get it all.

Could this be Hogna antelucana?
I found one that you guys have already indentified as Hogna antelucana that had an egg sac on the same morning about a half hour earlier in a different area. So could this be the same species? Here is the one you identified: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1299786

 
H. antelucana has ...
dark spots under leg IV, often I can make out that those spots are there even from a dorsal shot but I don't see them here. This also looks like it could be a male Tigrosa, but I'm unsure.

 
Thanks
I was simply going by the similarity to the earlier one with the egg sac, didn't know about the spots, thanks.
