Your False Black Widow spider pictures identified
Since the furore surrounding False Black Widow spiders kicked off, several Lincolnshire Echo readers have sent in pictures of spiders found in their house.
Some thought they may have been the False Black Widow itself, but a Lincoln exotic pet expert has put minds at rest.
Jim Tweedle from JC Exotics on Rosemary Lane in Lincoln has looked at the pictures you sent in and said they are all commonly found species that are harmless.
He said some of them were garden spiders, or Araneus diadenatus and one is a funnel web spider or Amaurobius similis/fenestralis.

Most of the pictures submitted were Tegenaria saeva or Tegenaria gigantea, which are the most commonly found large house spiders.
"At this time of year there are lots about," he said.
"People will find lots in their house because it is cold outside.
"They are not out to suck your blood or do anything like that."
