Does this look like a brown recluse to you?
    #4641180 - 09/10/05 10:30 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Alright, maybe it will work now. My neighbor informed me that brown recluse spiders sometimes reside in his apartment, which is connected to mine. I was wondering if this is one. Please help me out.

Edit: Here are the urls.

believe me, it's already dead. I just want to identify it before i go turning up the couch cushions and moving the couch looking for the possible rest of the lil buggers. I just didn't want to wake my neighbor up this early. I'm not trying to be pissy about this, but I'd really like to know what this is....someone please don't let me die, please!!

boO, thanks for the link. I have read up about brown recluse in the past so most of that was not new. Basically though, knowing they live in my area (litterally inside the complex) and being arachnaphobic doesn't help me. I have done image searches and there are different-looking types of them. Also, I know they can live in couches, cause a friend of mine had a nest under his cushions and one bit him. I'm going to ask my neighbor in a lil bit unless I can get someone who is positive one way or another. Thanks for help though guys.

Brown Recluses are only from Afghanistan if my super limited knowledge of camel spiders serves me right.

They are native to the south eastern and some south western parts of the U.S. I guess also, the midwest too.

alright, i'm gonna suppose it's not a brown recluse. I'm going to have to go to the office though and have the spider people come back out to spray again. In the last 20 min. I've already found two new spiders that weren't there yesterday afternoon. Thanks for the help everyone. I just fucking hate spiders!!

I guess this can get closed or let drift away.

the abdomen isnt quite right but the pattern on its thorax looks a lot like a recluse, so does its legs. The abdomen often has less pigment. But its safe to say nature has its variations.

My mom got bit by one a few months ago. Ate a 3 inch wound out of the back of her knee. Got heat flashes got a high fever and had to go to the hospital.

If there know to be around your house. Make it a point to clean out and check all the dark hiding corners. check your shoes and check around your bed.
