Just saw this guy this afternoon. It's probably .5-.7 in. long with a furry exterior. Backside is reddish-rust in color as you can see from the picture. I checked, and it definitely isn't a black widow from other photos I've seen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

"These big Phidippus are pretty inoffensive as a rule - I got bit by an audax once and had my thumb swell up some, but that's more a measure of my allergy than of the general "venomosity" of the spider. Most people would have less reaction to it than to a wasp sting."
