    1123 - Don't know, sorry. Steatoda bipunctata seems a possibility to me but really that's just a suggestion. It can be difficult to ID spiders from photos, and from a side view it's almost impossible.


    1122 - Steatoda nobilis, the false widow with the worst reputation, but not as bad as is reported in the press. Many people live alongside them without any problems. If they worry you, just throw them out of the house.


    1160 - Zygiella, the missing sector orb weaver. A very common, native species and harmless.
