    Can anyone help me I.D. this spider. I found it on our front porch; loaded this thing up with ant spray and wasp and hornet spray ( closest thing around at the time)! But, If anyone can tell me what kind of spider this is I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

    It looks like a brown recluse, but I'm not sure. Hopefully not, because the recluse is one nastly little spider.

    Aussie slang for toilet seat.
    Old favourite haunt of Redbacks is to hide under the seat of the outback dunny!

    looks to be a wolf spider. There are lots of different species and coloring of the wolf but that looks like one of them.
