This spider was found dead in a South London Mechanics under railway arches. Please can someone ID? The fangs worry me
I believe this to be a House Spider, Tegenaria sp, a male. Those are not fangs, but pedipalps, a male's modified mouth parts that help him transfer sperm to the female.
Nothing to worry about these spiders, they won't attack you, and will bite you only if you catch them with bare hands.
