Size: 3/8” body
We have a lots of these spiders in our house. They typically hang upside down in messy webs. The ones under cabinet toe spaces regularly catch, suspend and kill cave scorpions much larger than they. We live on a karst limestone bluff above a river in central Texas. I believe these are cellar spiders but would like to know if they are longbodied cellar spiders, Pholcus phalangioides? This article was coauthored by the former head of my biology dept, 2 miles away, so surely they live in this area? https://animaldiversity.org/accounts/Pholcus_phalangioides/
