Brown spider have the violin shape on the body. The one I have does not. I googled the "wolf spider" using the IMAGES and found many like the one I have.

They are very resilent to weather; I would spray them with Spider Insecticide and they would look at me and laugh...so, I would put my size 11 shoe on them. They can be found in many places in the USA due to the fact they travel in fruit and vegetable crates from the South. I know of a guy that got bitten in Minessota by a Brown Spider during winter!!!

I love spiders. It is a Brown Wolf as Mos said. Almost harmless. It can bite but rarely.Heres a link to Spiderzrule. The Brown Sider '95 speaks of is indicative to the West and ya it packs a mean bite

Based on the marking, and based on Another link from the same page you cited, I still gotta say wolf spider.

When I was a kid, we used to fill the burrows with water so they'd come out,
and watch our dogs kill them. I've even seen some very similar to that up here in MN

Holy spider bite
I just searched info on a Funnel Web Spider, and found out they are dangerous
although the pics dont even come close to what are near my house.
wonder if I've been told the wrong information all my life.
