Comments & ID Thoughts

Front legs were much longer than the others. It was brownish in color but seemed to have a red tint, and had some kind of spots/pattern/lines on its body

Hi there this could be a northern black widow :3


It might be Steatoda grossa, a False Black Widow. Steatoda species seem to have a more brown-red appearance when light shines through the legs than Latrodectus species. The white band across the top of the abdomen is more of a False Widow thing. Steatoda grossa has vague white markings, Latrodectus species are crisper in their markings colors. Anyone else?
