Comments & ID Thoughts

Very small but not tiny, was on an old mattress outside. I was bitten by something while moving mattress and this may be the one, just want to identify it.

Hi, this looks like a penultimate male Widow (Latrodectus). It’s very pale – maybe it molted recently, I’m not certain which exact species it is.
