I found this guy in my larder today while having a clean out is it possible this is a faculae widow or a silk spider.

Thanks very much

Matt

    Hi Matt,

     

    This looks like Steatoda grossa (AKA cupboard spider), one of the false widows. More widespread, but less in the public eye than the noble false widow. They're typically quite shy so mostly go unnoticed.

     

    Regards, Mark.
