Comments & ID Thoughts

Found alone in a messy web inside my garage a couple inches from the ground between the cement foundation and side wall of the garage. Maybe around 2-3 cm spread out, brown legs, black abdomen with many tiny white spots forming the pattern shown in the photo. I’ve found similar ones in the garage several feet away from each other with their own webs. Held it in a cup a few days, built a messy web and would hang upside down in it. Nervous about it being a type of widow.
