I believe it is probably the Crab Spider
I am pretty certain that is a variety of the wolf spider. scary as all hell, but completely harmless.
I am pretty certain that it is a rare Australian blue cyanide spider
It is not a brown recluse. I had a spider on my front porch and i researched it and it is a type of wolf spider. But just in case... just leave it alone. If it is in fact a brown recluse or another poisonous spider it can have a nasty bite! Good luck!
A spider that has a dark brown abdomen, with reddish brown legs, and a light beige bottom with dark brown club like claws could be a wolf spider. It could also be a tree spider.
One that is walking backwards
I dunno, but it sure sounds like that one i splatted in the bathroom the other night!
black hairy with white dots on its back
The brown recluse spider has a large abdomen with yellow striped rear legs. It also has red or orange front legs. It is found throughout the central, and midwestern United States.
Sounds like a "Spotted Ground Swift Spider"http://www.geocities.com/brisbane_spiders/Corinnidae.htm
It may be a Black and Yellow Argiope, which is a common orb web spider. Follow the related link to see a picture.
A black widow spider has eight eyes. The eyes are located in the front of the head and are arranged in two rows. Black widow spiders are very protective of their egg sacs but rarely bite humans.
Spider, at least it would fit into my hand. It doesn't really matter, most spiders and snakes aren't venomous. In fact the most lethal spider known to humans is actually quite small, a black widow, followed by the brown recluse and there is more chance that you'll get hurt sticking your finger in front of an electrical socket than if you stuck your finger in front of a snake.
It could be a black widow spider if it is small and thin-legged with a shiny round black abdomen and red markings under it. If it's fuzzy with a red spot on it's back, and the front part of the body is more-or-less the same size as back part, then it's a black jumping spider.
Looks like it's a female arctosa. Ick! http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Arctosa_sp.5.jpg
If it's pretty small, it could just be a house spider, which are harmless, but if it about the size of a quarter, it could be a brown recluse, whose venom rots flesh. So careful.
Try out this site: Spiderzrule.com. They have great pictures and descriptions of almost every kind of spider.
Could be a marbled brown spider, but so many spiders are brown, spotted, and have cream/black banded legs, it's hard to pin down without seeing a photo of it. I would help tremendously if you would repost your question and tell where you live. What country, what part of the US, that sort of thing. i live in big lake Alaska i found a spider in my kitchen it has a small black front segment approx 4 mm long and approx 2 1/2 mm wide all eight legs and the front two Shorter "leg" or antennae or whatever they are called come off this part of its body the back segment is about the size of a large pea and is brown with approx 10 or so white dots about the size if a tooth pick tip its abdomen is brown with no markings on it the total size including legs is approx the size of a quarter or maybe a little larger its legs are a yellowish white with black or brown bands on them sorry cant be sure of band color
well i know one spider it was in my front yard lukily my freind killed it 3 weeks ago and the date is 9-11-09 the spider is called a garden spider its all black with a yellow disign on it
*** Without separate amp*** Right Front - Brown/Yellow & White/Black at speakers, Brown/Red & White/Red at unit, respectively; Right Rear - White/Violet & Brown/White at speakers, White & Brown at unit; Left Front - White/Black & Brown/Yellow ; Left Rear - White/Violet & Brown/White
I think I have found the same Spider but can't ID it on the net. It has a smooth shell with two horns, both white on the front and a yellow posterior...
For the front door speakers in a 1997 Honda Civic, the left front speaker wire (+) is blue and the left front speaker wire (-) is gray/black. For the right side, the front speaker wire (+) is red/green, and the right front speaker wire (-) is brown/black.
I think it sounds dangerous and perhaps posionous
It may be a Garden orb-weaving spider, "Most are stout, reddish-brown or grey spiders with a leaf-shaped pattern on their fat, roughly triangular abdomens, which also have two noticeable humps towards the front. They sometimes have a dorsal stripe which may be white or brown edged with white." this is the site i found helped me. http://www.amonline.net.au/factSheets/orb_weaving_spiders.htm
