This guy is pretty big. Certainly larger than a quarter.
Looks like a brown recluse
You know, we were wondering that! I’m having difficulty confirming though because it’s eyes don’t quite look the same to me.
Recluse (Loxosceles spp.) have 6 eyes, this spider has 8.
Yes eye pattern is wrong for a recluse.
Hi, this is a Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira.
Thank you so much! I thought we were counting 8 too. He or she is now safely outside. 🙂
