Hi,
We picked these little guys up recently when we stayed in an RV park in Florida, though I guess they could have hitched a ride from anywhere. We see them frequently now (and webs all over the RV). If someone could identify them, we would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

I have seen similar looking spiders here in Michigan, if their range is this far north. Not sure about that though.

It does look similar, but it doesn't have the lines on its head that the ghost spider has. I'm not sure if that rules it out though. Thanks for the reply.

Yes it does, you're right! Are they venomous? Or dangerous to small children?

Except for the family Uloboridae, all spiders have venom glands; but the vast majority, including ghost spiders, are not dangerous to humans.
