Black Widow Spider

Latrodectus mactans


I can't be 100% sure if these are really black widow spiders or not since the red marking are on top of the belly section. I found two under a long 2x4 wood rail we were storing under our backyard deck, one spider was at one end of the wood and the other was at the opposite end. Near one of the spiders is what looks like the remains of another spider.
