Comments & ID Thoughts

Believe this is either a comb footed spider, or a false widow. Not sure would like answers! It looked brown in person with a silver line and two dots on both sides of the line on top of the abdomen. Couldn't see the other side. Was very small maybe the size of a dime with the legs fully out.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a False Widow, Steatoda borealis.

Like most spiders they have venom but are unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance. Everyone’s immune system is different though.
