Brown recluse, female - Loxosceles reclusa - Female

June 15, 2000
Size: US quarter dollar
This was taken from a home in Carrollton, TX. Several hundred were found in the garage, attic, and in the water heater closet, yet none of the residents could recall encountering a single specimen nor had any bites occurred, despite the tremendous number of spiders found.
