My wife found this spider in one of our kitchen drawers. Had someone say it may be a brown recluse, but it doesn't seem to have the fiddle shape on its back, nor does it seem to look quite right in its body shape. Would like to know if anyone can tell me what it is. Obviously concerned if it turns out to be a brown recluse.
We're located just north of Charlotte, NC, in the US. We live near a large lake, and it's not unusual to see fairly large spiders similiar to this one (but typically a darker brown and larger) all around our house - just usually on the outside! It was a bit of a surprise to have one like this in a kitchen drawer. I'm not particularly fond of spiders, so needless to say, it was a fun evening with the "creeps" feeling every little thing on your skin.
