Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this little guy on the wall outside my house. I've searched on google but still have no idea what kind of spider it is. It really small, about 1 or 2 centimeters.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 I’m not familiar with the species in your region, but this looks like a male Steatoda to me. Steatoda cingulata looks like one possibility judging by some online images I see.
