    It's about the size of a dime in this shot, and when it walks, closer to the size of a quarter. It's a quick little guy too! It's still alive trapped under one of my UV filters!!! I can take more pictures if anyone needs help ID'ing it :)



    yuck!

    EDIT (all the white stuff is junk on the filter, not the sensor, that 55mm Micro really picks up everything)

    that is not a brown recluse and it is not poisonus its venomous poison is ingested r obsorbed through the skin and venom is injected. If you want a positive ID on the spider i recomend posting it on arachnoboards.com they seem to be able to name any spider

    I'm about 99% sure that that particular spider is in the Ghost Spider Family.

    No idea what spider specifically as there are about 3500 different ones.

    Definately no poisonous to humans though.
