Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this on the wall in my bedroom late at night. It was just crawling up the wall. I caught it to take a picture. It didn’t seem aggressive, I thought it was a black widow at first glance. Is this a Steatoda Borealis or a black widow? Should I be concerned with children in the home? Poisonous?

It is a male of one of the Steatoda species, often called False Widow Spiders. It is not a Black Widow.
