Lycosidae (hunting spiders, wolf spiders; order Araneae, suborder Araneomorphae) Family of medium to large spiders that run over the ground hunting for their prey. Some genera are burrowing (up to 1 m deep) and others make funnel-shaped webs. Females carry their egg cocoons, which can be quite large, attached to their circularly arranged spinnerets.
