Wolf Spider - Geolycosa missouriensis

Wolf Spider - Geolycosa missouriensis
Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, USA
October 24, 2010
Size: ~1.5-2in
I found this large wolf spider last year. It's body was about 1.5-2 inches long, covered in short, thick gray hairs, and had large orangish-brown chelicerae. I think it might be a burrowing wolf spider in the genus Geolycosa, or maybe one of the Hogna wolf spiders.

Maybe Geolycosa missouriensis but I'm not certain at this time.

OK wolf spider
it's a beauty. The shape of the head does remind me of Geolycosa. I'd have to review my resources to say for sure. This one appears to have similar coloring, though it hasn't been ID'd either
