I found this spider in my sink. It was hidden behind a bowl. I saw a similar spider a few weeks ago as well. Can someone please help my identify it?

Moved for expert attention.
Moved from Recluse Spiders. This is where I was trying to move it the first time. Oops! It looks very much like a Brown Recluse.

Moved from ID Request.

Brown Recluse
Definitely a Loxosceles and the species is most likely Loxosceles reclusa (Brown Recluse). It's a male.

Recluse
Might be a Brown Recluse... watch out these are venomous
