Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this could be a false widow of some sort. Found inside a house in southern New Zealand. Am seeking proper identification of it, so I know what's lurking in my kitchen!

You are correct this is a “false Widow ” from the family Theridiidae and the Genus Steatoda. They are not aggressive and they do not have medically significant venom so no worries about this little one. Hope that helps.
