The key to iding them is that spiders are not generally shiny. If you shine a light on them they will be shiny. I would be worried about them, a gardener i know was bitten by one and spent 3 days having his leg drained. The hospital said it was the 5th incident that week. Their numbers are on the rise hugely…

I’d be less inclined to say false widow. The abdomen on the OP’s is kinda furry, the false widow is not.
I think the word you’re looking for is ‘fuzzy’, the spider is actually out of focus.
And yes, it’s almost certainly a Steatoda Nobilis, I found one lurking behind a large sink in the plate-making room at my last place of work, somewhere I often had to get behind to shift bottles of chemistry, so it was quietly evicted outside.
The topic ‘What's my spider? False widow?’ is closed to new replies.
