This is a False Widow in genus Steatoda, possibly Steatoda triangulosa. They’re in the same family as Black Widows, but their venom is different. They’re quite lethal to other spiders and insects. These are great house spiders. They want to run or hide from us and eat any bug that gets in the house.
