Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This is Scytodes thoracica, I confirmed my ID with BugGuide.net before posting it to double check myself. It was on the wall above the bathroom sink (best place to find them!) in the middle of the night (best time to find them). I think it ate all of my Steatoda spp. and Pholcus phalangiodes spiders in that room. Now it is gone and a Yellow Sac Spider, Cheiracanthum sp., spider is ruling the bathroom. The Cheiracanthum spp. spiders have been at the top of the cannibalism food chain of spiders in my house.

I agree you should have some level of moderation ability. However, I don’t know that the site is properly set up for it. If you want to ask I wish you luck but I still recommend BugGuide or iNaturalist for that energy. <3


For the most part concerning clutter and trying to file everything identifiable that’s probably not a good use of your time, although I get wanting to delete duplicates to help people you’re interacting with, spam, and other problematic posts when you come across them. The backlog is massive. I’d wait to see what sort of changes are ultimately made before investing a lot of time into anything.
