Thanks...
Thanks, Lynette. What a vicious sounding ID!

 
Yes,
I'm not sure what it did to earn that scientific name. One reference on the info page suggests it's a rather aggressive species.

Wolf Spider -
family Lycosidae... I'm not sure about the genus - these can be hard to ID...

 
..
I've added a link to the species info page for a paper by Brady & McKinley that includes detailed descriptions of the five Rabidosa species in NA. Very useful in telling them apart.

 
Great,
Thanks!

 
Thank you..
Thank you, John. I appreciate additional info.

 
Great,
I'm going to copy that and add it to the genus page as well. Thanks!

 
..
You beat me to it. :)

 
=] Not me
I tried to do it and it appeared just before I got there.

 
Thanks
Thanks, Ken. That ID helps me a lot!
