Gladicosa gulosa is a type of wolf spider found in Beech-Maple forests of the US and Canada, where the spider can be found in the plant strata of ground, herb or shrub. It is not one of the more common wolf spiders.
This spider is nocturnal and hides during the day. It makes no web or shelter of any kind and hides under leaves in the day. The female carries its eggs in a spherical sac until they hatch, after which the spiderlings may ride on the female until able to fend for themselves.
