spider???

Can anyone identify this spider? I'm wondering if it is a brown recluse or a brown widow? They are fairly common down here in Louisiana.

It is neither. It reminds me of a catface, but I don't know if they are that far south.

This is a brown recluse... see the fiddle?

NO, I don't like spiders... but have found some interesting ones. We have black jumping spiders with green spots here. Yikes!

edit: Ah.. it looks like it's an orb weaver

Labyrinthine Orb Weaver

Pretty sure this is it:

Labyrinthine Orb Weaver Spider Information - Scientific Name, Taxonomy and Size

And here:

Metepeira labyrinthea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gak.

Wow, you took such a great picture of that Orb Weaver that I think you should add it to Wikipedia!

This article will not make most people happy with how many spiders there are ....
You are always within three feet of a spider: Fact or Fiction? | Arthropod Ecology

Oh and if you are in the habitat area of wolf spiders then try not to go to bed with a wet head. Dry your hair before going to bed. Thom ended up with well over 150 wolf spider bites and on 2 different antibiotics because of one teenager wolf spider. (Bradenton FL if anyone wanted to know specifically where he was bite and corner of the right eyebrow and up into the hair on top of his head.)

If I found it I could easily identify it. It would be the type DEAD.

I read somewhere that the average person will swallow three spiders during their life time. Don't know about that.

If you swallow a spider I'm pretty sure it'll wiggle and jiggle and tickle inside you.
