World's Largest???

Hello, all.

I have two questions:

1.) What is the world's largest WOLF spider? I know that Hogna carolinensis is the largest wolf spider in North America. However, I want to know what the world's largest wolf spider is.

2.) What is the world's largest TRUE spider?

I hope somebody on this board knows the answers to these questions because I am very curious.

By the way, I am interested in the large hunting spiders (the ones which don't make webs and actively hunt for their prey).

All replies are GREATLY APPRECIATED by me. Thanks again!

Take care,

I can't answer that with any accuracy But for the U.S.A. Dolomides sp.'s can get to 4" legspan and 1.5-2" body length. I have caught many of these in Wisconson. Nephila clavipes can get to 5" in some large females , caught many of these in South Florida. Some Pholcus sp. can get a 3" leg span but only a 1/3" body.

Anybody else here ???
