What does a false widow look like?

False widows (Steatoda sp.) are sometimes confused for black widow spiders (Latrodectus sp.) and are mistakenly thought to be as dangerous. Both have a similar dark-coloured, globular body.

The name false widow is given to species in the genus Steatoda. Six of these species live permanently in the UK.

The three most common false widows are:

the rabbit hutch spider (Steatoda bipunctata)

the cupboard spider (Steatoda grossa)

the noble false widow (Steatoda nobilis)

Each species is fairly distinct in colour and size.

Noble false widows

The noble false widow is most commonly reported and it is the largest of the three most common species. It reaches a body length of between 8.5 and 11 millimetres.

The noble false widow was first recorded in the UK in the 1870s - likely a stowaway on cargo ships from its native Madeira and Canary Islands.

But it is only since the 1980s that the species has gained a strong foothold, forming established populations in the majority of the southern counties - although it has now spread northwards.
