Hi, this spider was in my bathroom on top of the heat duct then after I took the picture scampered down the duct very quickly. I reside in Central NY. The body was about an inch in length – it was a little large for my liking!
Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi Amy,
We haven’t posted any recent images of the harmless Eastern Parson Spider,
Herpyllus ecclesiasticus, in quite some time.  Your letter and photo are welcomed additions to our archive.  There are may nice images of the Parson Spider on BugGuide.
