Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm not sure what kind this is, but it looks like it has a lighter stripe down the middle of it's back. I found it on the ceiling in our front room & I dont think I've seen one like this before.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is one of the False Widows, tentatively looks like Steatoda bipunctata. (There are other similar looking species in the genus.)

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