Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Dark brown spider, 2 white stripes (1 down each side), 10 white spots (2 rows of 5). Lighter yellowy-brown underside.

Bite itches, then swells up to a raised hard quarter-sized red mark after 12 hours.

Hi, it looks like Dolomedes triton, a Spotted Fishing Spider. That’s a normal spider bite reaction though a bit bigger than usual, probably because it is a bigger spider. Did you accidentally have your skin pressed against it somehow? We tell people that they won’t bite except if pained by pressure or defending their offspring. I like to ask people what actually happened.


Please.. Can you help me with a spider I found in my house.
