Comments & ID Thoughts

Found several of these tiny spiders under spa cover. I am concerned that they are brown recluse because of what appears to be a violin shape on the head. They appeared to be babies and were very small less than 1/8" body length. Can you please tell me if you think they are a brown recluse?

Hi, this is a Cellar Spider (Pholcidae). They’re not anything to worry over.
