Default What kind if spider.

Freaked me out because I was less than 4 inches away from it. Then took a pic and kicked it dead with my boot. There aren't any poisonous ones around northern IL but here's a pic:
to give a scale: the tile is 4-5 inches wide and 9-11 inches long


Is it poisonous? Thanks in advance

Appears to be a wolf spider. I am certainly not an expert (Shihan is). The abdomen looks a bit more rounded than what I am used to seeing though. They are venomous (as are almost all spiders), but not particularly dangerous to most people.

It's a venomous species found worldwide known as a 'Scytodidae' or spitting spider. How close, exactly, were you?

Is that a mimic of the fiddleback? I've got those all over that look just like yours MrWray. I seriously thought I might have fiddlebacks.

Wolf spiders are pretty common damn near everywhere. You might get a lump if it bites you.

94,

As they have advised it is a Fiddleback!
It is not a Wolf Spider.
