Noticed this small dark spider sitting on the plughole filter of our shower. Its body and head are about 6-7mm. Could it be a False Widow Spider? A few days ago we returned from Tenerife - could it have crept into our luggage and got out? If it is this species, should I kill it as an invasive species, or let it go as there appear to be many in the UK now?
