Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Have been told it’s either a black widow or false black widow. The underbelly is a light brown. This picture is of him curled up so his legs don’t look as long as they are. Found him in my mailbox.

Hi, it is one of the false widows. It looks like a Steatoda borealis to me.
