    How can I say "Araña de Rincón" in English?

    This is a very common spider in Chile, but I don't know if its name is the same in other countries.
    It´s a very dangerous spider, it´s black and it could be big or small. A "araña de rincón", lives in corners of the houses and dark places.

    Please, help me!
