Comments & ID Thoughts

Seems to be missing a leg. Looking for opinions. May just be a cellar spider. We have a suspected brown recluse bite in the household and with the dark mark on its back I was looking to verify. Thanks in advance.

Hi. this is a long boied cellar spider, Pholcus phalangioides species. A rather innocuous spider often found in association to man made structures.
