I cannot give any further details, other than it wandered in through an open window. 1p for scale and a brilliant Blue too boot.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Steaoda (False Widow) but they’re not typically that shade of blue. I wonder if it somehow managed to get paint on itself or if there is some trick of light.

She might have gotten into something outside before coming in.
