    Main article: Steatoda
    The genus Steatoda is a large genus which includes many of the false black widows, as well as other types of cobweb spiders. Many specimens in this genus are sometimes mistaken for widows, but they have more flattened abdomens, and their abdominal markings are generally white stripes or dots rather than red dots. None of these spiders is truly dangerous, but some of them are medically significant, including:

    S. grossa
    S. nobilis
    S. paykulliana
