Comments & ID Thoughts

I believe it is a Amaurobius ferox (Black Lace Weaver). Found it in my basement on the wall. Not sure of the sex.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 You guessed right (Amaurobius ferox). You found a male … the boxing glove looking part on the leg-like appendages (pedipalps) near the spider’s mouth give away the gender.
