Yes, this looks like a Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira. There’s always someone insisting a spider is a black widow or brown recluse. 🙁 Brown recluses aren’t in Massachusetts at all in the wild. We do have about two species of true black widows, but I don’t know anyone who even claims to have seen one in New England.
