Description

First up, I'd love confirmation of the identification. I've seen these tiny spiders my entire life in central Florida. We always generically called them "wolf spiders" -- tiny, nocturnal, easily spotted trekking through grassy lawns at night. I believe this is Hogna antelucana, but would like some feedback.

This spider was enjoying a tasty aquatic midge.
