Comments & ID Thoughts
Found at night in the bathroom. I’ve been previously bitten by something while in bed, developed a very painful ulcer, needed antibiotics and developed a scar.

This particular guy was not easily frightened but was very fast.
I should also mention that when I was bitten last year I had just returned from cabin camping in GA. I drove there and back, maybe I brought something home in my luggage and it has.nothing to do with this little guy? Any helpful opinion is certainly welcome! Thank you!
I have no way of knowing what caused the wound. Blood sucking insects are more likely culprits than spiders but if one gets in your bed or clothes and you roll over on to it it could happen.
You got it. 🙂 Welcome to Spider ID.
