Comments & ID Thoughts

Black Widow - looking for an expert to tell me if this could potentially be a black widow. I did not get a chance to see the underbelly. Wondering if there is enough evidence here to disqualify it being a black widow or not.

Leaning False Black Widow (Steatoda grossa), a real Widow’s (Latrodectus) legs are *usually* a little more robust but I’m not 100% certain from this image so treat it with respect to be on the safe side.
