Can someone please identify this spider ?! was found in Manchester UK today !
It's some sought of wolf spider en.wikipedia/org/wiki/wolf-Spider
Sorry I'll try and make the link work!!!!
This is Tegenaria gigantea, a fairly common house spider. I cannot tell if it is male or female because the pic does not help. Females to 18mm and male to 14mm.
Pretty sure it's a male.
Deffinately not a House Spider it was to big.. Its been taken by a local specialist to find out what it is.. I should find out sometime soon..
I'm pretty sure this is Tegenaria gigantea, The males can have a legspan of 5in (125mm).

Have you found out what spider this is yet. Curiousity is getting the better of us aracnophobes.
