    Which spider species is this? I found it in my room here in London. At first it looked like some false widow species but now upon closer inspection it looks like zygeilla x-notata but not sure. Just need to confirm. [​IMG]

    I am now keeping it in a cup. It's lightning fast and almost gave me a heart attack when it darted.

    Hiya :) I'm not a spider... uhh... man lol, and I'm sure someone who knows what they're talking about will be able to give you an ID, but as someone also in the U.K. I've found this site really helpful https://www.naturespot.org.uk/taxonomy/term/19531 (that's their orb page, it's only small but it's good). It doesn't look like any false widow I've been shown though :)
