This one is stumping me. Most common spiders around my household is orb weavers, widows, grass and common house spiders. I have never seen this one before.

Yes, that would be the spider. That’s the first time I’ve heard the marking described as the White House. That’s a terrible tramp stamp! It looks like a Bald Eagle or the head of a Klansman to me. ;( Thankfully the spider is not at all as dangerous as its back end’s marking. This might have been difficult for you to identify because it is a Western spider only. They were introduced to California, I think from Europe. They are good at killing flies and mosquitoes – gotta love it!

This looks similar to one that I just posted. We have had a lot of real black and brown widows around our area and unit.
