Large brown spider - Pisaurina mira
Hollywood, Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
April 19, 2012
Size: about 1 3/4"
Was found hiding in a wisteria vine. She had spun some webbing to better secure the leaves she was hiding under.

Wait for the spider specialists, but
take a look at Pisaurina mira:



EDIT: Lynette's too quick for me. :)
