Since Brown Recluse spiders can be found in the area, I'm trying to educate myself to be able to identify spiders in our house on the fly. I caught this spider hiding between two boxes (as yet unpacked) in our dining room.
I don't see a violin shape, so I don't think it's a Brown Recluse - but would like to be sure.
