    Hi Sue,


    I've only just started learning about spiders, so although I cannot tell you what kind of spider this is, I have looked at False Widows a lot and I believe this is not one.


    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

      Hi Sue,


      The photo isn't great, nevertheless, I tend to agree with Florian - this is unlikey to be a false widow, I suspect it's a harmless, missing sector orb weaver...really a better picture is needed for a more solid confirmation....or google "Zygiella x-notata" and compare to your captive?


      Regards, Mark.
