I cant find anything on this spider, and I have like 8 of them.

Moved from ID Request. I agree with the ID below. Can you tell us what county you found this spider in?

Arizona, USA
Arizona, USA

I'm looking for the county....
not the country or state. You know like Mohave County, Navajo County, etc.

Cellar spider, family Pholcidae. Looks like Holocnemus pluchi to me:

They're harmless.

Thank you.
I think you are right, though the markings vary slightly, I have investigated the entire Pholcidae family I can find, and the pluchi is almost dead on, so maybe its just an adaption because of the foreign environment. Thank you.
