Guess: Scytodes thoracica

Found on the wall in the 2nd-floor foyer around 10-11PM. Had an interesting pattern, unlike any other spiders I've seen in the house before. Couldn't climb up the smooth walls of a disposable food container (Spider is safe, it wasn't thrown away.) Ruler and HO train stuff for comparison.

Hi. these seem to come in waves. your spider is a spitting spider, perhaps Scytodes thoracica.
No threat to humans or pets, I have let them live in my place, I just try not to suck them up the vacuum on cleaning day. they are fast and dead accurate spitting their venom, even fast bugs like roaches are helpless.

You’re right. Filed. Welcome to Spider ID. 🙂
