Latrodectus hesperus - male

Latrodectus hesperus - Male
Mayer, Yavapai County, Arizona, USA
September 5, 2020
Size: 5mm
Male Western Black Widow sorry I didn't get a shot of the hourglass. This is a Male and harmless for most part. Unlike the female L hesperus which becomes a darker brown to black and loses its coloring, the Male retains his beautiful colors into adulthood.
