Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this spider in the bathroom. It was approximately a centimeter in length and light brown. It was CRAZY fast which leads me to believe that it is the Common House Spider.

Yes, Cheiracanthum mildei. They actually are a kind of house spider though they aren’t called that.

They are effective hunters though tiny. They drop down on their silk really quickly too. A Thin-legged Wolf Spider (Pardosa spp.) was one of the speediest spiders I’ve seen.
