Hello guys, I need help to ID a couple of latrodectus. I have been serching for data but still Im not sure of which Latrodectus it is. I have three famales and one male so I expect to breed'em soon.
My location it's in Cuernavaca, center part of Mexico. So it's a mexican Latrodectus. Thanks for time.

Interesting. I have almost no experience with the Central/South American widows besides pictures and literature. I'm not sure how often mature curacaviensis retain white markings (on top of the abdomen). I know full well how variation in coloring and patterns work in Latrodectus, but the patterns almost look similar to some of the corallinus I've seen too. Anyways...

Any chance of an hourglass shot? That might actually help a little bit.

If I had to go based solely on location, with no other info, I'd have to say curacaviensis...
