Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Have no idea of species; iNaturalist.org gave no clues.
It was in the "roof" of a tunnel going under a road with another of the same species engulfed in too much webbing to be very useful though I did photograph it and it can be found here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/18359272 Many specimens of "The Herald" moth also present - no other life observed other than another spider that appeared dead. Temps below freezing.

Hi, could be a black lace weaver spider. The camera flash makes it hard to see if it has the abdominal pattern. False black widow also possible, They have abdominal dimpling and some gold banding. Both species live in very dark places. You gave me a great idea, I never thought of hunting spiders in a pedestrian tunnel under a highway nearby.
