Spotting

Description:

I don't think it is a black widow, but may be in that family of spiders.

btlounsbury is correct - it's a black widow spider. Do you happen to have a clearer shot of it? I can narrow down the ID if you can tell me whether or not the red hourglass shape is complete (one piece) or broken (separated into 2 red pieces). Thanks!

Also, this spotting is an arachnid so it needs to go into the Arthropods category.
