Black Spider

Observed: 28th May 2010 By: gingapie

Found this spider on my back yard underneath my daughters paddling pool, could someone please help me identify? I have a few ideas- possibly the Fake Black Widow- but could do with someones professional opinion. Thanks!

Amaurobius ferox

I too am heading for a Amaurobius ferox, or Black Lace Weaver Spider. These spiders have been known to give a painful bite..

Thanks Phil
