Comments & ID Thoughts
Found this spider in our bedroom in Middlesex, Vermont, USA. It had made a web between two pillows on the floor. It looks all black in the image but up close it has orangish markings on the underside and upper side of its abdomen. I'm thinking of a false widow species. From the images on your site it looks like Steatoda paykulliana for the orange band across the front of the abdomen and the tiny divits on the top of the abdomen. Can these bite? Woke up with a couple of bites the other morning. Was worried about bed bugs but with its proximity to my bed I'm hoping it was this dude. :) Thanks I still have it if you need more images.
