Brown Recluse_02

I gently tapped this brown recluse spider with a glue board in order to catch it.

The brown recluse spiders are also commonly referred to as "fiddleback" spiders or "violin" spiders because of the violin-shaped marking on the top surface of the cephalothorax (fused head and thorax)
