Black widow in door frame? - Latrodectus hesperus

Size: approx 1 cm
Working late, found this inside back door frame, need to leave early for work/explain to wife who has spider issues. Have not had a chance to see ventral abdomen and do not want to dig it out of lair yet. Yellow marking on anterior dorsal abdomen makes me wonder if not a black widow. Thanks for your help.
