The spider is solid matte black with tiny lighter spots right at the joints of the legs. The abdomen has a dark brick colored patch on the underside. The spider does not like being in a jar and has bunched its legs together and is playing dead rather than actively trying to escape. Bunched up it just covers a penny. It was found in my kitchen near a baseboard and had to be coaxed into a jar by putting something behind it so it would run in.
