think you lucked out

The crumpled carcass looks too dark to be from a brown or desert recluse, no scale to be sure, but looks too big to be a recluse, and it's not a black widow spider, so in Texas, that is receiving a pass on this encounter. Like the other post, there is not enough for me to get much traction in the identification department. Don't know if you felt it because it was munching on you, but if its not one of those two bad guys we have in the state, it wont ruin your day. Hmmm, maybe you need to consider splashing on a 50/50 mix of cologne and DEET each morning, might be a good practice in east Texas. You seem to be attracting spiders, maybe they like you, ha. My grandmother would recommending bathing in coal oil as a preventative, kerosene to you that are under about 50 years old.

That species is called the 'Squishius Spdercus'. They are found very commonly around dark, damp areas, much like Kev's neck. ;)

Glad I could clear that up for ya. :D

this more like a trick question. The light is too poor, and its been squashed so I figure there would be no way to ID it like this.

But the question got yall to thinking.

'Squishius Spdercus' sounds close enough to me for an ID.
