    Can Anyone I.D. This Spider?

    This spider was last seen on my computer desk. He is very fast.

    Very dark brown if not black. The spots on its back (hope that is the back) appeared to be clear/white/yellowish. Top of legs appeared to be brownish. Halfway down appeared to be red.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hope it is just wolf spider too. Didn't look like one though (thought they were tan/tan).

    Wolf spiders have a bunch of different colorings... definitely should squish the heck out of it. OR catch a centipede and the spider and put them in the same jar. "Thunderdome!"

    So, I have read three articles on them, none of them say if they are harmful to humans or not.
