Wolf Spider (Hogna frondicola)
I found this guy on my garage. It was a little larger than the normal Pardosa sp. I run into, around an inch in diameter.
You can tell this is a Hogna species because of the eye pattern. Wolf spiders are most readily identified by their eye patterns. If you look really closely in a bigger size you can see a small horizontal row of four eyes, then a set of two larger eyes above that row, then another set of two on top of the carapace. Thats the hallmark of a Hogna sp. spider.
