Comments & ID Thoughts

Brown recluse ?? Maybe. We have been getting these at our back door and one even in our bed yikes!! for about 2 weeks now. We have only had wolf spiders in the past and this spider is a new one that I've never seen before. It has a faint violin shape but hard to make out secondary to they are still fairly young spiders it seems. They are very slow. CaN someone please help these can be dangerous and I'm scared need to know what it is .

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This tentatively looks like a Ghost Spider (Anyphaena sp.), I don’t recognize the exact species though.
