Is this a false widow



This spider has been quite comfortable in the corner of my patio door for a while now. I've taken it down along with two more as I suspect that they're false widows.This one is a lot bigger compared to the other two caught.


Please can anyone identify it for sure?

    Hi MissC,


    The spider in your photo is a Zygiella species (missing sector spider), probably Z. x-notata.


    Absolutely harmless, very common in houses, especially around window frames, they seem to like car wing mirrors too.
