Spider - Scytodes

Spider - Scytodes
Marietta, Cobb County, Georgia, USA
July 12, 2018
Size: Body: ~6-7mm
The entire body is 6-7mm, the legspan is ~25-30mm.

I found it zipped inside of my laptop bag that has been in my closet for 3 months (last use was on a trip to Japan). It looks like it might be starved and dehydrated? There were no webs inside my bag. It walks very slow and doesn't move much.
