    Hi Harry,

     

    This is a male steatod nobilis, the noble false widow. Put him outside. Males wander around looking for mates so are more often spotted out of their webs. Females on the other hand stick close to home, rarely venturing far from safety.

     

    Both are quite docile, bites only usually occur when they are accidentally crushed against the skin.
