Comments & ID Thoughts

Parasteatoda tepidariorum? Not showing on photo: Dark mid stripe ends about halfway upper side abdomen.

Female body size, about 7 mm (on eye), male about half that. Web: as theridiidae. About 3 meters of the ground, sticky and strong. No matted midsection. Size was about 25 cm in diameter.

I've relocated both + egg sack into terrarium, to learn more and get a better look at things. I'll try make some better pictures if needed.

Tentatively this looks like Parasteatoda tepidariorum. I’m not too familiar with P. simulans though.
