Spider Identification

I spotted this spider in my garden over the weekend, just curious if anybody knows what it could be?

    Hi Sam,


    It's one of the false widows, most likely Steatoda grossa by the colour & shape (can't tell from the photo whether it has any markings, or whether what look like markings are just reflections, I suppose at a stretch it could be Steatoda nobilis, a large one with faded markings). They're pretty common, but usually hide away.


    I get 3 species of steatoda in my home, but rarely see female S grossa.


    Regards, Mark.
