Spotting

Description:

There are some pictures on the internet of the Brown recluse that look similar, but that spider isn't suppose to be here. Maybe a rare find for Washington state.

Habitat:

Spotted under a rock in a wilderness area in eastern Washington. Shrub-steppe.

Not a brown recluse. More likely a Woodlouse spider. There are no Brown Recluse spiders on the west coast.
