Comments & ID Thoughts

I’m guessing this is either related to, or is a False Widow but I’m uncertain. Anyone know what this is? Found in San Diego, CA today 5/6/19 outside on my balcony an hour before it rained. I’m on the 5th floor, so I’m up high with no trees or shrubs nearby. Seems non-aggressive but didn’t seem to be afraid. Has a white solid violin-like pattern on his back surrounded by black and then silver, and has reddish brown and black legs.
