Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this in my house after it rained, and I live in the middle of the woods. No idea what it is but want to know since I’ve found a few of them near my bed and my babies bed.

Hi. I am thinking this is a mouse spider, Scotophaeus blackwalli species. They are not dangerous or aggressive, but trapped against the skin, a bite can sting pretty good.

Hi, this looks like a Ground Spider (Gnaphosidae) in the genus Gnaphosa, possibly Gnaphosa muscorum. See: https://bugguide.net/node/view/566984/bgimage

I just caught a spider that looks just like this, but it has some light markings in the back. I’m in Oregon.
