CLOSED: Large Dark Brown Spider

Houston, TX

To whom ever wants to help,

We just remodeled our house a few months back. Weíve found two large spiders in the past week, like the photos Iím uploading of the most recent.

My wife is terrified it is a brown recluse. Iím a novice spider identifier, so I canít rule them out. Any thoughts?

Definitely not a brown recluse; most likely a nursery web spider in the genus Pisaurina, such as Pisaurina mira.
