Yellow Sac Spider ("prowling" spider)

Yellow Sac Spider ("prowling" spider)

Long-legged Sac Spider or Yellow Sac Spider (Cheiracanthium sp.).

This was one of many dozens of babies (all less than 2 mm) leaving their nest and crawling around on our bedroom ceiling. They are commonly found indoors.
I normally avoid disturbing solitary spiders, but this horde of juveniles was too much and so were "invited" into to our vacuum cleaner.
