Genus Latrodectus.

The hourglass of Brown Widows is wider than on Black Widows. You did the best thing by giving the taxon level that you are comfortably confident of. Thanks for helping!

I thought of brown widow but I did leave it in the genus-level because I don’t know about other widow species of US 🙂

By the way can you ID my false widow pictures(paykulliana, triangulosa and albomaculata) when you have time?

Thank you for being so polite 🙂 Our website administrator decided that we need to focus only on North America. Our digital storage is full and things need to be deleted. The photos from outside of USA and Canada will probably be deleted. You know more about your local spiders than I do. Please keep identifying spiders. iNaturalist needs volunteers. You’re welcome to volunteer here too. We have some of the same spiders in our countries.

I’ve seen the news. Thanks for your messages, I’ll keep IDing spiders on iNaturalist. It’s sad that old records are gonna be deleted but I’ll keep trying to ID spiders of North America as far as I can here. Good luck to you and all of the moderation team about the new version of SpiderID, have a nice day.
