Comments & ID Thoughts

Looking to identify this one. Initial thoughts are false widow. Currently lives in a crack in an external wall in the south of England. Nocturnal but doesn't sit at entrance. When it does appear more of its body is out than that of the other tube web spiders I have in my garden. Its nippy too- there one minute and gone the next.

Noble False Widow (Steatoda nobilis) if I’m seeing it right, not certain with this level of detail.
