Agree with you on mouse spider. One of the few north American spiders I actually do tell people to be wary of. They actually can be a bit more prone to biting and have a potent venom yield. Brown recluse get all the attention but they hardly ever actually give bad bites. These guys could be considered more risky to give a painful and lasting bite.
