Comments & ID Thoughts

Tiny spider that I have found inside our home in NW Illinois. No more than a quarter of an inch long in either direction. I have searched online for help identifying it, but can’t find anything. I thought maybe it was a spiderling because we have found ten plus other identical ones inside our house. They are always on the ceiling or on the wall close to the ceiling. I have not noticed any webs near these little guys when I find them. Any help is appreciated!
