The brown recluse is known to occur in a range from southeastern Nebraska to southwestern Ohio, south to northwestern Georgia and into Texas. Occurrences outside that range are exceedingly rare. Related species exist in the southwestern United States. (Photo credit: Richard S. Vetter)


  1. This map is incorrect, I live in south western NY state, and know 3 people who have been bit by them. All 3 were able to recover the spiders in question, and were confirmed brown recluse.

    • All 3 either traveled to a location known to have them and the cane back in travel or were exposed to someone who did right before the bites.
