Someone recently asked me what is the largest spider in New York state. I didn't know. He had been camping and seen in a restroom a spider with a body over an inch long; including the legs, it was about 3 inches long. I've spent a lot of time outdoors in New York but never seen a spider this big, except for tarantulas in cages. Can anyone tell me what my friend might have seen?

Thanks!

Ray

It is possible it was a Lycosidae, wolf spider. It could be non native species, an escaped pet.
