Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This is a Steatoda triangulosa with a millipede as prey. This photo was taken of a granite block retaining wall that has many animals living between the blocks including snakes and newts, and insects and arachnids. Now I know that False Widows eat millipedes.

Something tells me its not a Steatoda. If it is this is an interesting Variety of Stratoda (Steatoda Triangulosa). I have never seen one anywhere likenthis, especially with the whitttish tanish blotches and that line up its back.

Its most definately Therdiidae family…
