Hi, this is a black lace weaver, Amaurobius ferox. Where the black lace weaver spiders do have venom they are not fatal towards people. However they do have a mean bite which can hurt for days. The black lace weaver spider prefers to live in dark humid places so when they do venture indoors, they are most often found in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms. Will bite if provoked by being touched or threatened. Its bite leaves a white patch surrounded by redness with nausea lasting up to three days.
