Although there’s no reason to believe it’s a False Widow spider (other than the fact it has a skull on it’s back and must therefore mean business) I can’t find anything else which vaguely resembles it.

Anyone out there got a better idea of what it is?

    I honestly don’t think it’s a false window (it’s legs are thinner and banded and its abdomen isn’t shiny or as dark). But it’s better to smoosh than be bitten, I says.
