Well tonight my wife and daughter found the 2nd L. reclusa in our house since we moved in.

This one was on the ceiling.(as was the last one) The last one I caught appeared to be a male. it looked like it had swollen palps. so I assumed it was a male.

This one doesnt have the swollen palps, has more "girth" to the body, and is smaller overall.

I figure around this time of year the females are probably already bred and looking for a place to lay. Least I assume.

anyway. Ill get some pictures up here in a bit. just figure I would ask.
