We live in North Bristol and I found this beauty last night.... climbing onto my desk alongside me!
If it's a false widow then I'm reading that they are supposed to stay in their webs! Not this little blighter.... wanted to join me on a Skype call I think.... ;-)
Any ID's would be welcomed..... it is matt black in colour colour, size of a 50p piece,.... shape, pattern on its abdomen (brownie/reddish) and 2 slight depressions on the top of its grape shaped and sized abdomen.... quite feisty.... wants to rear up and fight! (Not that I want to...;-) )
