Took this photo on 29th September 2011 In Woolwich SE18.
Wasn't too sure as the pattern on its abdome looks as if the colours are reversed which give a skull like apearance.

Yes, this is Steatoda nobilis. A male, to be exact.
Yes, it is a Steatoda nobilis, the pattern on its abdomen is typical for the species. These spiders are well established in the London area.
