Comments & ID Thoughts

See, I looked at the upper body and thought it had a violin shape, like a Brown Recluse, but a brown recluse has a blank abdomen. Then I thought it was a Hackled-Mesh Weaver, but its abdomen is oddly flat and has a pattern I've never seen before... Plus, it positioned itself like a crab spider? The hell is this thing, even? I couldn't trap it alive, so it's dead, and I had to remove the front legs to show more of its upper body, since its legs covered both sides of its body. I'm thinking maybe it's a Common House Spider? I'm really not sure, that's why I registered to come get my answer from people who know their stuff, so I can see if I have a problem or not.

Please don’t worry, it isn’t dangerous at all.
Also don’t worry about wolf spiders. One of my spider books said, “You’ll only get bitten if you deserve to be.” They bite in self-defense. And thank you for the compliment. 🙂
