Marbled orb weaver?
Hi Bugman,
I’m not entirely sure of this kind of spider and I am wondering if you could help me identify it. I think it could be a marbled orb weaver, but am not certain. I found it on the underside of our green bin. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Yvonne,
This is not one of the Araneus spiders, but one of the Cobweb Spiders in the family Theridiidae which includes the Widows. We think this might be the Domestic Spider or Common House Spider, Achaearanea tepidariorum.
