Hello,
I found this spider in my apartment in AZ. Not sure what it is since I grew up in IL and don’t think I’ve seen this kind before. Any help would be appreciated! 🙂

Dear Brittany,
We believe we have correctly identified your Spider, and if our identification is correct, this will represent a new category on our site.  This looks like a Spitting Spider in the family Scytodidae which we found on BugGuide, and where it states:  “Spitting spiders have 6 eyes and are slow moving. They are usually fairly easy to identify by their large round cephalothorax and their long, thin legs.”

Spitting Spider, we believe
