Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this might be a black widow, Latrodectus Hesperus, but I’m not sure. It was found in a crevice around the hatch to the roof at my work- a woodworking shop. I didn’t want to disturb it so I cannot verify that it has the tradition red markings, but everything else about it seems right. Any insights would be welcome.
