Comments & ID Thoughts

Before any comments, I did spray it with bug spray so it is dead.

Very tiny, Found inside a metal bar on the ping pong at our office at Digital Brew in Orlando, FL. So judging from the fact that is was burrowed on something metal and dark also being in Florida I thought it was a brown widow or not fully matured black widow which means there are potentially more somewhere. But I am not sure, Does anyone know for sure what this is?

Hi, this is a Running Crab Spider (Philodromidae), looks like Philodromus floridensis.
