Hi. Looks like one of the nursery web spiders, Tinus genus most likely. Quick if spooked, but quite harmless.

No need to kill them, Easy enough to catch and release outside.

Hi, this is a very cool find. Looks like Homalonychus theologus (Dusty Desert Spider), species specific ID based on location. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Hey, your right. Thought that face looked a little pointy, just out of mind not seeing one in 30 years. They are in Nevada too.
