False Widow spider?

 I know they are not particularly rare but I have never seen one before, I believe this could be a false widow, there were at least 8 of this species in the modular sign at Strumpshaw today. Have I identified them correctly? I dont do spiders!

 Also behind the pannels were a huge number of harlequin ladybirds, incredible how many colours and patterns this single species come in!


  1. I found a definite False Widow in Fen Hide in the Summer: showed it to all the regulars before it scuttled off....

  2. Nice one, I'll remember that when decobwebbing the hide in the coming weeks!
