What type of spider is this?
So I found this spider and it looks similar to a male black widow but not exactly the same. Do you happen to know what type it is? Is it a false widow? Its about the size of a penny when its legs are spread/walking.

It is a female Steatoda triangulosa, a harmless cobweb spider in the same genus as the false widows.

Your little friend is a female Steatoda triangulosa. Same group with false widows.
About as harmless as spiders come, one lived her life eating bugs in my pantry, named her Cassi.
