Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Found in my sunroom on a piece of furniture full of potted plants that I have recently brought in from outdoors. It blended in nearly perfectly with this oak tone wood. It was about the size of my pink nail or a kernel of corn. I am not an expert but by the colour and markings thinking it’s maybe a young hobo spider?

Hi. This is a Xysticus genus crab spider. Sorry I can’t get close with ID.
They are not dangerous at all, probably eating bugs in your plants.
