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.
Also, there has been a lot of disinformation about the Brown Recluse. First, people can live in and around Brown Recluse spiders and never get bitten. One house in Missouri was found to have over 1200 Brown Recluse spiders and yet no one had ever received a bite.
Secondly, the Brown Recluse spider bite is usually self limiting, does not develop into necrosis in 90% of the cases and often heals without medication. Many other arthropod borne disease are far more dangerous than Brown Recluse bites. For those people who are allergic to their bites, the results can be startling, including tissue necrosis and secondary infections.
