Another spider id please!!

Hello

 

I'm living in France, just south of Paris and I've found this spider in the outhouse and wondered if anyone knows what it is.  I'm guessing there's nothing poisonous in france but I hear you can get black widows in the south of france and was half wondering if this is a male (due to the white dots on his back).  I know the males aren't poisonous so I've left it there for the moment.  I'm just hoping that there's no female around if it is a widow.

Anyway, I couldn't catch it because it's surrounded by loads of silk threads and anytime I got close i touched one and the spider legged it.  I've managed to take a macro photo.  The spider is about 1-2cm.  As I say, it's still there so if you need a better picture I'll try and catch it first.

Thanks for your help.
