Identify this spider, if you can...

It was dark brown, and very hairy. It’s body was long, not circular and bulgy like a typical widow. Almost shaped like two connecting tear drops. I live in the suburbs of northern Virginia, if that helps.

Some kind of hunting spider?

It looks like a classic North American 404 Spider to me.

(In other words…the link is giving me a 404 - Not Found - error.)

Looks like a wolf spider. Fearsome looking but mostly harmless (at least in U.S.).

Dude, any spider that hunts wolves ain’t harmless.

OK, I’m kidding.
