What type of spider is this?

I live in Southeast Missouri, United States. I've seen Black Widows outside my house and also many Brown Recluses inside my house, but I've never seen a spider that looks like this. It's very tiny, about a half or a third the size of a pencil eraser. It was near the baseboard under my computer desk in my office. The area has hardwood floors and is very dark even during the daytime, and I saw this spider at about 2:00 PM. My office room is also on an external wall of my house.


Edit: maybe a Steatoda triangulosa?

    Yes, Steatoda triangulosa. They are very small compared to most other cobweb spiders.
