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?
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.
Thank you. If I see anymore of them in door frames etc I shall leave them be.
