The glossy, black bodied female widows have distinctive red spots on the undersides of their abdomens. The spot often is shaped like an hourglass. Faint red or white spots may also appear on top of the abdomen, as they do in males. The female’s bite is poisonous to humans. The black widow is not aggressive and bites humans only defensively.
