Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider bit my daughter this afternoon in our pool. We live in DFW, Texas. I'm trying to find out if it's a yellow sac spider or possibly a garden ghost spider. My daughter doesn't even have a wound from the bite but I'm concerned.

No need to be concerned. Both families are considered harmless to humans. This is a Ghost Spider (Anyphaena sp.).
