Trying to identify this spider.
February 28, 2010
I’ve got this great picture my brother took. We’re trying to identify it. Can you give me any information. Is it poisonous?
This is an immature Black Widow, and you probably know that the bite can be dangerous. The female’s venom may cause a poisonous reaction. BugGuide has much information on the Widow Spiders in the genus Latrodectus, and there are numerous images that show these markings on the immature specimens.
