False Widow Spider

Thank you for this identification. If it helps further it had a deep russet, shiny body which was about 8-9mm. The legs weren't as long as on the species in the second photo added here and they were thicker.
Thank you!

I would plump for Steatoda bipunctata ,based on your description.
