Steatoda. coloration makes me think possibly bipunctata but I’d need to see the underside of the abdomen.
This is actually the underside. I have not bothered to ask her to turn over, yet. 🙂
Interesting! With that information, I’d be pretty comfortable calling this Steatoda borealis as this would match their patterns perfectly.
Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 I agree this is a Steatoda, there are several species out west that may look similar so filing to genus.
