I was recently given a very worn specimen of the spiderlings that are infesting our friend's house. It measured 1/10th of an inch and had been dead on an alcohol pad for several days. The parent hasn't been seen and their concern was are these Brown Recluse? If this was our house on the creek I would say 90% likely but she needed better odds.

- This specimen had been dead several days and may have lost some color.
- It might have been preparing to molt with some separation of its cuticle.
