Mediterranean recluse spider
Loxosceles rufescens, the Mediterranean recluse spider, originated in the Mediterranean region as its name implies, but has been introduced to Arkansas, Hawaii, and the gulf states of the United States. Although uncommon, there are more confirmed reports of Loxosceles rufescens than the brown recluse in Ohio.
