Comments & ID Thoughts

found this guy on the deck, thought it was a tick until i noticed it had started spinning his web between the boards, snapped a shot with my phone cause it has what looks like a skull pattern on the back and i’ve never seen a spider with six creepy holes on its body, so i ended up here when i was searching online to identify its species.
