Wasnt able to completely figure the body of the spider completely but it had no web so im debating whether or not it is a false black widow but had very similar features.

Noticed this on my siding partially protected by a porch roor although I don't know how long it's been there.

Is it possibly an old False Widow egg sac? I have found several False Black Widow spiders on the porch and this looks like a shriveled up False Widow egg sac.

I'd really like to get an ID on this.
