    Hello there.

    Yup this certainly looks like a rather lovely Steatoda noblis or 'False' Widow. Don't panic though as most of the stuff in the papers is made up rubbish. They're certainly not aggresive to us and 95% of the people who say they've been bitten actually have no idea what bit them. S.nobis would also far rather be outside than in your home. It has been a rather good year for them and I have noticed big increase in their numbers about South East London. But then again I do go looking for then .
