Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Saw this spider on the door frame outside last night. This morning it had a nest, wondering if this is part of the widow species? If so should the nest be removed or left alone?

If it is a false widow, it may be a Steatona nobilis. The Steatona genus does have striped legs, though I will admit not often as contrasted in colour as seen on this spider.
