Brown Recluse

Loxosceles reclusa


Brown recluse spider with a green abdomen


I found it in a barn under some cardboard boxes.


I think the green color is from a caterpillar that it had fed on earlier. It must have been toxic to the spider because it died later that night (I kept it in a ventilated plastic container).
