Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador. I found this spider under a pile of toys in my home - my son's room. Seems to be a regular spider - found two or three of them in my office.

Its span is like 3 to 5 cm. I don't exactly remember.

What's this spider's specie? How worried should I be?

  • A photo that was in focus would help. – Darren Jun 5 '20 at 8:59
  • Any markings you noticed would be useful too. There are a few venomous spiders from the central American region – bob1 Jun 7 '20 at 20:34
  • No special markings in that spider. Its opisthosoma was mostly light-brownish. My first thought was a latrodectus geometricus but the legs didn't look the same. – Luis Masuelli Jun 8 '20 at 16:48
