Hi, your image has been filed. (See above image for ID.) 🙂
Thanks. A lot of people told me it was a brown recluse spider. Are you sure that it’s not? What are the differences?
Your spider looks too hairy, Recluse (Loxosceles spp.) are not very hairy. I would expect the legs to be more laterigrade (crab-like) if it were a Recluse, the way they’re positioned on the right side of the spider with the first two legs together is typical for a resting P. mira. Compare to:
Also there appears to be a broad dark median band on the anterior half of the carapace and some-sort of subtle pattern on the abdomen that are both inconsistent with Recluse Spiders (Loxosceles spp.).
Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate it.
