Moved from Wolf Spiders.

Moved from Spiders.

Moved from ID Request. I agree with wolf spider, beyond that I'm not sure. Maybe Laura will have some insight.

What do you think of ...
Gladicosa gulosa?

Looks like her to me

I agree
it looks really close.... I'm not sure what else looks similar though.

I think Alopecosa ...
can look pretty similar but figured that was out of range.

Wolf Spider
The leg patterning reminds me greatly of Tigrosa georgicola or T. aspersa. I'm leaning more towards T. georgicola since the medial stripe extends all the way across the cephalothorax. However, the medial strip is much thicker in this individual than what I'm used to seeing.

there were dozens of them in a small area of woods, this one was by far the largest, I could see their eyes shine in the flashlight beam when they looked my way
