Comments & ID Thoughts

Here is another picture of the two spiders together, of which I’m wondering if they are British Cave Spiders. They have different markings but we’re found together inside a bucket that had another bucket inside it. They were sleeping and woke up after about a minute of light

Hi. Both of these look to be female Steatoda nobilis, noble cobweb spider/false black widow.
The lighter colored one may be penultimate and not developed such contrast as the other.
Odd thing here is two females in such close proximity, normally they don’t play well together and one becomes lunch.
