This spider spent a month or two scurrying across our living room floor late at night - it ran very fast, so I was quite proud of myself when I finally caught it. Having seem a black widow like spider today in our shed (which was not going to run fast anywhere), I went looking into what it was. I was surprised to see photos of this very different spider being called a false widow spider - they are just so different!
What is this spider? I am happy that the one I saw today was a false widow.
