Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider is in my brother’s garage in Glendale, California. He also found a black widow on his broperty on the same day he found this one. I really don’t know if it was found in its web. In the photograph, I don’t see much of a web background. It wasn’t crawling, though. It was suspended.

This tentatively looks like a Brown Widow, Latrodectus geometricus.
