Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Picture taken in my garage. The spider looked dead and dried out. I tried hitting it with my boot. I didn't see anything run or move so I thought I killed it. When I lifted my boot all that was there was the striped part. The legs and red round part was gone. Mystafied. Maybe thought the red part and legs were the spider and it was eating on something dead with stripes. Unsure. Maybe not a spider at all.

Hi, this looks like a Potato Bug/Jeruselum Cricket. Not a spider.

I would find these all the time growing up in California
