Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

My friend in England sent me this picture of a tiny spider she found on the wall in her house. She says it's not even the size of the tip of her pinky, but if I had to guess I'd say it's a young false black widow? The only strange thing is that the coloration on the back seems a little off/reversed.

Either Leptyphantes or Tenuiphantes sp.


Not at all . I can’t see clearly whether the legs are ringed or not, but perhaps you remember this detail. Distinct rings would point to Lepthyphantes rather than Tenuiphantes.
