Can these be found in Massachusetts?
I was photographing a spider that looks similar to this grass spider, however I'm not sure exactly what their native regions are. Here's a picture:
The legs are, however, the only thing that seems to match up. The eye placement is more in a arch shape on the top of the head, or at least from what I could see. There was either a very short palp or none at all which leads me to believe that it was adult male, but then again I'm no expert. :P Also one of my thoughts was that it may be a wolf spider, but it was only about the size of my thumbnail. If the name of this species could be verified I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
