can we get a closer look of its Thorax region ….a lot of Spiders are confused to be a Brown Recluse

may be a Southern House Spider ….

What appear to be extra long pedipalps (leg-like appendages near the spider’s mouth) make this likely a male Crevice Weaver (Kukulcania sp.), there are several very similar options in the genus out west including the afore mentioned Southern House Spider (Kukulcania hibernalis). They are often mistaken for Recluse (Loxosceles).

Welcome back! I hope you had a good rest away from spider body parts! 🙂

Thanks, the past few days have been particularly busy for me, I expect that to be the case a lot this Summer unfortunately. Even if I don’t have time to do much I still try to peek in.

We have a great group of volunteers who are learning very quickly. They’re impressive and enthusiastic. I think we can hold this together. 🙂 Please enjoy the summer and live life ( and occasionally check to see if we screwed up anything).
