Loxosceles reclusa spiderlings? - Loxosceles

Loxosceles reclusa spiderlings? - Loxosceles
Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, USA
October 5, 2016
Size: 3mm measured
A friend ha found a lot of these in her house but no adult spider. Six eyes, uniform color of abdomen and legs all points to Loxosceles and reclusa is said to be the only species naturally occurring in Missouri. The "fiddle" isn't well outlined. Any other species?

Looks like brown recluse
Resembles a brown recluse to me. The faint pattern, pedipalps, overall body shape, and six eyes arranged in pairs in a semicircle make me think recluse.
