spider id any ideas


Could someone tell me what this spider is?  I have found at least half a dozen in my conservatory over the last 15 months.  Looks like a black widow, or is it a false widow?  I live in south west england (cornwall).

Many thanksP1010032.JPG

    This looks very much like Steatoda grossa, one of the false widow species. They are usually pretty shy & stay out of sight.
