I recently started to face my fear of spiders - actually prompted by this false widow stories going about. I have learned a great deal about them, and feel all the more better about them as a result.
I have, however, noticed a rather ugly looking spider on the gate to my garden, which I cannot identify.
I know it's not a false widow but wonder if someone here could ID the spider for me?
I have attached 2 pictures of it.
This is the rabbit hutch spider (Steatoda bipuncta), it is one of the false widow species, but is generally considered harmless & not a biter.
