Observed: 5th February 2011 By: mascicat

Many thanks

Small spider

Might be a Steatoda nobilis; young ones do have something like 2 rows of black dots on the dorsum (top of abdomen). This is a suggestion, rather than an identification!
On a general point, could you iSpotters, add the county (and country if not UK)- a full postal address is unnecessary. Thanks.
