wolf spider - Hogna frondicola - female

wolf spider - Hogna frondicola - Female
Lancaster, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
April 21, 2006
Size: ~14mm

Moved from Gladicosa gulosa.
Mandy, I agree with you, thanks for catching it.

I wonder

Looks just like Kaston's drawings of H. frondicola and also just like others that have been placed there in the guide (though the abdominal spots are less distinct), e.g.:

Moved from Wolf Spiders.
