Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this could be a house spider, not sure. Approximately 1" diameter, long legs. Found in my bathtub in Chicago (in February). Sorry for the poor picture quality. I have captured the spider in a plastic container. I will release as soon as I figure out the type of spider. I'm nearly certainly this is not a Brown Recluse, however I want to be sure in case I need to call for assistance. Thank you kindly for your help!
