I found this spider in some grocerystore greenbeans. I don't think this spider is from around here (United States) so could you please tell me what spider is this, thank you very much.

here are the photos of it.

Hi David,

Firstly, sorry it took a few days to get a reply here.

Those are great photos, and many thanks! Especially you photograph laterally (side view) and ventrally (underneath), such photos are often really useful for identification, and unusual to see! (i'm more used to a couple of blurry pictures often of a needlessly crushed animal!). It's a welcome change!

Well you spider is a member of the family Sparassidae. As it's in the US, i'll direct you to a really good US spider site: And linked to that family.

It would have been helpful if you gave more detailed location, at least your state or nearest city and such, although it sounds like it was with some store produce and you think from elsewhere. You could indeed be right, but many other cases i've seen people mistake local wildlife for non-native.
In this case though i think you're right, i'm favouring a female of Heteropoda venatoria, a well known hitchiker with cargo. Take a look for the recent article by Vetter et al. (2014) "[size= 12px]Spiders (Araneae) Found in Bananas and Other International Cargo Submitted to North American Arachnologists for Identification", which shows a pair of H.venatoria, the male and female are quite different in appearance.
The female has a distinctive white band "moustache" near the chelicerae, as yours has, making me think of that first. It's one of the most frequently imported, and has spread across many tropical countries, and consequently often imported to USA, Europe etc.

But, also take a look at your native species of the genus. There seem to be four species, foucused in the SouthWest of the USA. See how those compare please. Olios. http://www.americanarachnology.org/JoA_ … 03-530.pdf

Anyway, if it's H.venatoria then its a non-native invader, but realistically harmless to humans - the venom is not significant, although not good to have released in local environment - i think for example they've come established in Florida, but at what harm to existing wildlife? If another native species (where knowing your location would i expect help confirm against), then practically harmless and no cause for undue alarm. :)
