Sorry if this is in the wrong spot but my wife just texted me that a spider crawled out of our bananas and sent me a picture. I dunno what it is but I told her to put the bananas in a zip loc bag and wait for me to come home.

Anyone know what this is?

I think I was able to use Google to identify. Looks like a Sac Spider - Trachelas pacificus.

Just an FYI on your means of identification (garbage in/garbage out), meaning don't trust a computer to ID a small spider for you. ;)

Important Range Notes
Keep in mind that there are at least 7 other North American species in the genus Trachelas that look incredibly similar to Trachelas tranquillus, so if you find a look-alike outside of the range listed below, chances are, it is an entirely different species. Only an exam under a microscope can tell them apart.
