It's not a brown recluse, like they're saying in the link. A brown recluse has a very prominent (brown) fiddle on their head, not their abdomen, and not an hourglass. You are getting misinformation in that other thread.

Listen folks, if you don't know what you're talking about, please don't post.
Americans sleep safely in their beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do them harm...

Happiness is a Barrett M82A1 .50 caliber and a target at least a click out........

I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you with tears in my eyes, if you f**k with me, I'll kill you all.....

Nope. Brown widow has hour glas marking on abdomen in red and also has darker brown markings on legs......

This one is soft brown, markings on head that are liter brown. And looks loke black spots on abdomem...I think I'll save it once it dies. There is so many spiders species in Tx its not evem funny so I can get it I.d.
