Comments & ID Thoughts

Guessing this is another Arizona Recluse, but hoping I'm wrong. This one was found in my parent's house...where my cat lives! More specifically in a not often used guest bathroom. Spider is about 1" with legs extended.

It’s a recluse, and it’s so leggy compared to my local L. reclusa! Genus Loxosceles is right. In the Tuscon area, it could also be L. sabina, L. deserta, or L. apachea. Would require microscopic examination of the pedipalps to distinguish species.
