Comments & ID Thoughts

Found this guy running around my bathroom at top speed. From what i gather, it's a male false widow or steatoda grossa? I've only ever seen one female at a different location in the tracks under a window pane, but this has got to be at least the 6th male I've seen. Must be because they run around so much. Only other spider I've seen run like that was a male black widow.
