Found this one in my sunroom today.
Montgomery County Maryland
Looks like a male wolf spider. The "boxing gloves" on its front identify it as male and are useful during mating to hold onto the female and intimidate other males. This is a good guy and should be escorted outside. (Sweep into a trash can and dump outside.) Spiders are beneficial insects that eat many pest insects.
