First of all, sorry for the crappy photo. This spiderling is tiny, and I took the photo with my phone camera. :meh:

If the spider is too small or blurry to identify, I understand. Just figured I would give it a shot and see if anyone has any ideas. :) (oh, and you can tell its size by the water droplets beside it)

I've been trying to identify these little things for a year but keep coming to a dead end. At about a millimeter in length it's difficult to get a clear view of any of the anatomy. These appear in my apartment every year in large numbers both male and female. The males always end up in my bathtub for some reason.

It reminds me of a wall spider (family Oecobiidae, genus Oecobius).

They don't get very big, and their eyes are arranged in a crescent like the ones in your photos. They are often found indoors.

Some of the photos on that link do look an awful lot like my lil sling. :)
