Male Steatoda grossa

Sure thing! These guys will often be smaller than brown recluse spiders, and have more patterning on their abdomens. Brown recluses also tend to be lighter and have more even colouration. They also look fuzzy, while spiders in the genus steadota look fairly smooth and shiny. Hope that helps!
