Steatoda sp

S. grossa IS a native species, but this is not S.grossa which has 3 rows of spots, never a single row. It is possibly S. bipunctata, but suspiciously like S. castanea, of which I have only seen preserved specimens. Recorded from Germany, Holland, Sweden.
Is '13-43 Berrylands' in any of these countries?
