It’s That Time Of Year ( Eratigena Atrica )

The giant house spider, now with the scientific name Eratigena atrica, is one of the biggest spiders of Central and Northern Europe. It was previously placed in the genus Tegenaria, where in addition to Tegenaria atrica, it has been documented as Tegenaria duellica, Tegenaria gigantea and Tegenaria saeva, among others, all thought to be different species. In 2013, it was moved to the new genus Eratigena. The bite of this species does not pose a threat to humans or pets, and the spider is generally reluctant to bite, preferring instead to hide or escape.
