PostSubject: Maybe brown recluse?? HELP!   Sat May 30, 2009 6:51 am

Tonight I found this critter crawling around my house. Originally I was SURE it was a brown recluse, maybe just a young one. After doing some research, I am not so sure anymore, however I cannot figure out what it is.

The reasons I do not think its a brown recluse anymore is that it appears to have 8 eyes (2 in front, 2 in back). There is a chance the 2 in the front are one bigger eye (which could imply recluse), however they are not arranged like a normal recluse. Also, this spider does not appear to have a violin on its back. I didn't know if recluses had the violin when they were young??

These pictures may be difficult to see the eyes of the spider, but PLEASE help me identify this spider. I really would like to know what I have crawling around my house. This is the 2nd spider I have found like this! Thanks!!

Hi
Do you live in an area where there are brown recluse? Chack out my spider map
http://www.spiderzrule.com/dangermap.htm and see if you do. I don't think it is to be honest but I'm not sure what they are, the photos aren't real clear are they?

Thanks for replying. I live in East Tennessee, so by your map there are brown recluses around. I have heard from several people that they are not that common here though - although they are seen sometimes.

No, my camera is not the best - and those pictures are as good as I can get. I took several, and posted the best ones.

The main reason I do not think it is a recluse is due to the eyes. As I mentioned, I'm about 90% positive the spider I found has eight eyes, instead of six. Also, there is clearly not a violin marking on that spider, but I'm not positive ALL recluses have that marking.

The problem is, I cannot seem to find ANY other spiders that live in my area which resemble the one I found. The closest looking one on the internet is the brown recluse. That is why I am having a really hard time figuring out what it may be.

Do you have any guess at all as to what those 2 spiders could be?? ANY help is appreciated. Thanks -

Brantley

The second one could be some sort of Amaurobius, they have the shiney abdomen. The abdomen on the first one looks like a male nursery web spider

I'm afraid that's the closest I can come up with sorry, glen
