    The first black widow I had, but her time has passed. She's a hesperus. I took some great pics of her while she was at her penultimate. She now rests in a small jar of alcohol.

    Did she deliver any egg sacks?

    Beautiful spider! She had a very odd hourglass as an adult from what I can see. It's almost split into two triangles.

    She didn't. However I have another penultimate female and mature male, and I will try and have them mate.

    Beautiful spider and Latrodectus Hesperus are my favorite species of widow spiders

    I like the hesperus markings better than the mactans
