Comments & ID Thoughts

My dog found this little one on the living room carpet around 11:30 pm. This is a macro pic; spread out it's about dime size and body is approx. 3/8". Slow moving, I first took it for a crab spider, but closer look has me thinking a Recluse. I'm ready for your ideas & conclusions. Thanks!
