Im not sure what this one is. My friend says brown recluse, but it looks different to me.

Moved from ID Request.

Selenops sp.
It's not a brown recluse. This is a wall crab spider of the Selenops genus. Affectionately called "flatties". They're known to be harmless to humans.

 
thanks
I really appreciate your input...it puts my wife at ease. :)
