I found this spider on my bedroom ceiling. I have never seen one that looks like this and wondering if you have any info. It has a weird white color stripe on head and back. It was roughly about the size of a nickel. This was in the state of Vermont.
Signature: Thank you

  1. Thank you for your information. I wanted to just let you know that this particular spider, (Parson’s), showed up in my house in Southern California. Wow ! Pretty far from the East coast. Welcome to California…..;) Have a nice day.
