We found this guy in the windowsill at our house in Greensboro, NC. After a few hours googling and much deliberation we decided it must be a Male Northern Black Widow, any chance you can confirm it for us?
We could never get a very good picture of it’s underbelly but could tell there was a red mark, just not sure the shape.
Thanks for the help!

Dear Not 100% sure,
This is a male Widow Spider in the genus
Latrodectus, and it is most likely a Northern Black Widow, Latrodectus variolus, based on photos posted to BugGuide.
