Comments & ID Thoughts

Not sure what he or she is, but it likes it near our back door righr by our dryer. Hasn't really moved but in the morning when I open the door, it disappears for a while then it's back hanging out.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a False Widow (Steatoda sp.). This is the underside of the spider, to narrow the ID down further with certainty it would help to see the dorsal side of the spider.
