Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

3mm long. Light brown to tan. Symmetrical black spots on the dorsal side of the cephalothorax located near coxa, and on the abdomen. Cephalothorax very round, abdomen oblong. Six eyes more or less in two rows. Anterior median eyes and posterior eyes larger than anterior lateral eyes. Distinct heart-shaped tan region between posterior eyes. Black spots and bands continue on legs. Looks like each leg has two claws but it's hard to determine. Not in a web, found sitting on an unused bed through the night, so probably a wanderer. Apologies for the terrible cellphone picture. I drew a sketch of the dorsal view and the spinnerets, but it appears that I can only upload one picture per submission. The sketches are more helpful than the picture, so if you're interested, just email me at l_killgore@protonmail.com. Spider was examined using a 60x-120x hand microscope, so detailed examination of the chelicera and epigyne were not possible.
