Comments & ID Thoughts

Not sure if this is a brown recluse, as it looks like it has a dull out line of a violin shape, but not sure if it has to be more pronounced then this one is. I can't tell if it has 6 eyes like a brown recluse or 8 like other spiders. It does have fine hairs on its legs. Hope someone can help me with this. Thanks!

Hi. Well,the eyes are wrong and patterns on the abdomen can rule out violin spider.
Brown recluse are not found in California, but 3 other species of Loxoceles are.
Can’t make out eyes well,but I won’t rule out a very young giant crab spider, Olios ?? Curicaberis ??
