4所位於倫敦的學校,因在校園發現假寡婦蜘蛛而停課數星期。假寡婦蜘蛛體長約14mm,是一種行動不太敏捷、獨行並且無侵略性的蜘蛛,牠雖然有能力咬人類的皮膚,被咬後引致的痛楚與黃蜂的相似,但於整個歐洲只有兩次咬人類的紀錄。每年秋天假寡婦蜘蛛都會在英國出沒,並不罕見。

In London, four schools are closed for a few weeks because of the noble false-widow spider. this spider is around 14mm long and is ponderous, solitary and non-aggressive; it could bite and cause pain similar to a wasp sting, but there are only two records of this species biting a human in the whole Europe.  noble false-widow spider is the most common false widow found in UK, specially in autumn.
