Brown Recluse

The Brown Recluse

The Black Widow can be identified by its shiny globular shaped abdomen with the characteristic reddish-orange hour glass marking on the underside.

The typical way people have identified the Brown Recluse is by the violin shaped marking on the cephalathorax, however, there are several species of spider that have markings similar to the violin marking that are not the Brown Recluse. The true Brown Recluse spiders have 6 eyes, the other of those spiders have 8 eyes.
