According to my insect ID book, there are over 50
known species of tarantulas in the southwestern US,
many of them still unknown to science.  It's hard to
see the top of the thorax of this one.....but it's a
cutey from the front!  

I had a giant wolf spider (5 inches across) land in my
car in West Virginia several years ago.  I sent photos
to experts everywhere, and no one could identify it. 

Good luck - wish I could help.
