Comments & ID Thoughts

I was working in my garage late last night when this guy came crawling up my back. Not sure exactly what type of spider it is. I was thinking it was a wolf spider at first, but after looking at a bunch of similar spider images online,im beginning to think it may be a brown recluse. Im hoping thats not the case because this is the third or fourth one of these same type spiders ive killed in my garage just this week.i have a 3 year old so im extremely worried about the potential dangers of my son coming into contact/being bitten by one and could really use some pro expertise in id'ing this thing so i know exactly what im dealing with asap. Please somebody help me.

Hi, the bit of abdomen that isn’t mangled looks like that of a Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira.
