Can anyone advise what kind of spider this is, I found it in my living room. I live in Glasgow, and didn't think they came this far north
A bit unclear in the picture - but it's not a false widow spider. My money (if I had any to spare) is on an Amaurobius species eg:
See if it looks like any of the pictures on the link. It's known as lace web spider for the appearance of the web it spins outside the hole it lives in.
This page and the links from it will tell you more about false widows and some of the species mistaken for them.
Thanks Chris, wasn't too worried for myself - was more concerned in case my wee Shih tzu got bitten
