Steatoda nobilis or grossa?

This spider has been living high up in a corner of my kitchen for a month or so, on a web with very strong threads near a poorly-fitting vent outlet.  It only comes out on the web at night and hides during the day or if you get too close.  It's been missing for the past few evenings, but yesterday I found it trapped in the sink, so I could get a good look at it.  Here's a couple of photos, one taken at arm's length while it was on its web, the other after I trapped it.  It looks like a Steatoda; am I right, and if so, which one?
