Comments & ID Thoughts

I have several photos. There’s a big one on the left of my window and a smaller one that’s possibly not the same kind on the left. They both have small sticky, sudo disorganized webs. They are very nocturnal. The bigger one is super shy, but has it’s web both inside and outside the window. They live in the “track” if you willl.

Without a full view of the spider (preferably of it’s back) it’s hard to tell what kind of spider it may be, but very leggy they are!

–that is a female Kukulcania – commonly called a Southern House spider or a Southern Crevice spider: absolutely harmless – you can let her walk in your hand. The males ( also harmless ) are much smaller and unfortunately ( for them ) look very similar to a brown recluse
