BTW ,a recluse has a eye in the center. This one does not.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_reclu...The above link will give you more info. Brown recluses have 6 eyes.
@ Matt, Did you notice any violin like marking on it"s back? if it is plain black or brown it definitely is not a recluse.I do not see any markings in this picture. Maybe the pic is not very clear?Brown recluses are not that common.Regardless ,it is always a good idea to practice caution with creatures.
Guys, I found this in my apartment in New York. Are you sure? A similar spider did escape from my luggage when I got back from south africa in December, though...
If nit is a brown recluse it will definitely have a white violin structure. If this did not then it is not a brown recluse.
I'd agree on the Brown recluse identification. I've seen a few recluses in the flesh, pretty fascinating experiences.
Don't let it bite you...
That looks like a brown recluse!
