Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this spider and others like it in my garage in an area that hasn't been messed with for several years. The webs are thick, almost like cotton candy. I was wondering if it might be a Steatoda Grossa aka False Widow spider?

Close, this is a triangulate spider, Steatoda triangulosa. Harmless.
