    Spider ID?

    I missed the day they taught entomology in school, so I'm pretty ignorant about bugs. Do any of you know what kind of spider this is? (This is looking at its underneath side.) It has apparently lost a couple of legs along the way, but there should be enough body markings for someone who knows spiders to know what kind it is. I'm guessing some type of wolf spider?

    I see no spider, therefore there is no spider
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Ah the dreaded offset legged spider. Very rare and hard to find.

    If it had a Sawstop it would still have eight legs!

    That's an easy one....it's a 'Squisher' if they are spotted...yep, around here, it becomes 'squished' as soon as it's spotted
