Brown Recluse Spider
(Length: 1/4″ – 1/2″) The brown recluse is a brownish spider with a distinctive violin-shaped mark behind its eyes, which has earned it the name “fiddle-backed” spider. It is found in undisturbed areas such as sheds, garages and dark closets. Garments left hanging for some time are favorite spots. Their bite causes a severe systemic reaction and an ulcerous sore which requires extensive medical attention.
