IDENTIFY THIS SPIDER

Greenfield, IN

I found this spider in my room tonight. Not sure if I should be afraid or not. I live in northern Indiana (hope this helps in ID). What is it?

This is a wolf spider (family Lycosidae); these spiders have very good eyesight and actively hunt down their prey. They are not dangerous to humans, but large specimens can deliver a painful bite if handled carelessly.
