Was going through my older files and ran across this. I think it is a black widow but not sure. Anyone want to id it? Oh it was living in the edge of an ATM.

No, not a black widow. Black widow is jet, shiny black, with nothing but the bright red hourglass shape. Pretty shot, though...

Based on what I can see here, and what I've been able to look up; I'd say that it's, likely, a Brown Widow (Latrodectus geometricus). Cool coloring going on there.

Same here, both Black and Brown (and I'm not certain which this is; Eric S. may be correct). I could go out right now and find at least five, in various stages of maturity. Some, when less mature than the one pictured, have mainly white abdomens with gold designs. Kinda pretty.

Here's a Brown. The designs fade as they mature.

and one even less mature (Black, I think):
