Latrodectus bishopi

The red widow spider has a red-orange cephalothorax, its abdomen is black with yellow rings outlining the rows of red spots, and its legs are vermillion red. The underside does not have the familiar hourglass marking that are present on other widow species, but a small red bar.

Red widows are believed to be venomous like the other Latrodectus (widow) members, though no bites by this spider are recorded in the medical literature; unlike cosmopolitan species such as the black and brown widows, it seldom comes into contact with humans and is smaller in size.

The red widow spider is a threatened species in the United States, so we are lucky to have them. :)
