Explanation of Names
Cheiracanthium inclusum (Hentz, 1847)

This species is more likely to be found outside rather than in the home. The similar C. mildei occurs most often within homes but not necessarily so.
Nocturnal running spiders like Cheiracanthium inclusum, shown here feeding on bollworm eggs, are important nocturnal predators of cotton pests. (Flores, 2009)
