There are pics of a few (dying) ones on my profile page you can look at.

Hi, this is not a brown recluse. This is a male southern house spider, Kukulcania hibernalis. It looks very similar to a brown recluse. You can tell the difference by the very long pedipalps that the southern house spider has. The messy web in the background is its web.

Thanks, I didn’t know to look at the pedipalps for K. hibernalis. I’ll add that to my list of helpful identification tips I’ve learned from other volunteers.

Oh. Thanks. It does look so similar to the recluses that have infested my home. I thought maybe the marking on its body was too light to see in the pic. Sorry about the misinformation.
