Picture of Oecobius - Dorsal

Comments & ID Thoughts

No identity.
Found on the ceiling, in corners, behind picture frames.
Do not jump but they do bite. Bite is quite severe, antibiotics required.
Any ideas?

It’s a Wall Spider (Oecobius sp.), they’re not considered to be of medical significance though infection is possible with any bite.
