Comments & ID Thoughts
I am suspicious this is a male or female black widow. We live in East Tennessee and we have a finished basement. The front of it is underground but the back is not, as it is on a hill. The spider was downstairs in the hallway, at the bottom of the wall. This spider is not black though. It is reddish-brown. It has some sort of design on its back that looks to be similar to that of a black widow. We have found several shiny black, black widows outside around our property over the years. And quite a few years back I found to inside the house. Those were obviously black widows. But I cannot tell about this one.
