Brown Recluse?

Please tell me it isn't! Had to whack it a few times with a shoe to kill it on the soft carpet. Has some Brown Recluse markings, to me, and the grabbers in front, but not definitive.

I'm in Iowa.

You posted this in the Insect Forum some time ago, lol. With 100% certainty, I can tell you that this is NOT a brown recluse. You're safe.
