Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I'm attempting to find the venomous spider which bit me and caused an extreme allergic reaction this weekend. This is the first I've found and killed and would like to know if it's a candidate for the guy that put me in the hospital.

Photo was taken with a microscope on relatively low power. I have others including cellphone pictures but could only upload one. This spider was found already dead in a bed across the room from my bedroom.

Hard to tell from the extreme closeup but based on the eyes it looks to be a Tan Jumping spider, if that’s the case, this spider doubtfully caused any allergic reaction or bit anyone.
Jumpers are curious extremely tolerant of human presence and are kept as pets over all by most people, even people that aren’t “spider” people. This species are cute and very harmless. I would need to see body shape to confirm, second guess would be a would which are equally as harmless but scary looking to arachnophobes.
