Format?[edit]

The format of this article is such that there is a HUGE gap of white space between the intro and the next section for me; I expect this has something to do with the image, but I'm unsure as to what to do about it. The Jade Knight (talk) 01:00, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect Image[edit]

The image used in the description box does not belong here. It has been misidentified as Hogna frondicola, when it's actually Tigrosa georgicola. Tigrosa spp. were moved from Hogna to their own genus and are easily identified by their thin median lines. T. georgicola is distinguished from its cousins by its heavily banded legs. While T. aspersa also has leg banding, its median line is only visible towards the front of the cephalothorax, between the eyes. This should be replaced by a photo of an actual (correctly identified) Hogna. Eximago (talk) 06:12, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

@Eximago: ok, I removed the image from the taxobox. As you seem to know about these spiders, could you please look at the images here and find one from North America that is definitely Hogna? Peter coxhead (talk) 09:03, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
