Do not let the 13 dots on these things fool you. It is a widow and as such is veomous. This spider is also known as the European black window, as well as the steppe spider. Its scientific name is latrodectus tredecimguttatus.

Where is it?
It is commonly found throughout the Mediterranean region, ranging from Portugal to southwest and central Asia, hence the name.

how poisonous is it

This spider has an LD of .59 mg /kg  and as such bites should be avoided.
