Comments & ID Thoughts

Found on a ceiling in a living room. I have ruled out most common household spiders bc the markings on his back do not match their descriptions. Want to make sure he is not poisonous. I appreciate any help.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Jumping Spider, Platycryptus undatus. Like most spiders they have venom but are unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance, everyone’s immune system is different though.
