About the Brown Recluse Spider

The Brown Recluse Spider (Loxosceles reclusa) is a relatively small spider (6 to 20 mm) found in the south eastern parts of the United States, from Nebraska to Indiana and down to western Georgia and Texas.

The Brown Recluse Spider is a well-known arachnid species throughout it's native region, and abroad. They are a part of the family Sicariidae, but used to be categorized in the family Loxoscelidae. As the name suggests, their colour is normally brown, but it can range from a light tan to a deep yellow as well. The Brown Recluse Spider has markings on their body with a black line that gives the impression of a violin with the neck pointing towards their rear. These markings are responsible for humans giving this spider the nicknames violin spider and brown fiddler.

This 'violin pattern' can not be used to distinguish the Brown Recluse Spider though, as other spiders have similar markings. To identify this spider, you need to look at the eyes. Most spiders have eight eyes, but the Brown Recluse Spider has six eyes arranged in pairs (one median pair, two lateral pairs). Some other spider species have six eyes, but the Brown Recluse Spider lacks the coloration patterns on the abdomen and the leg spines that those other spiders have.
