Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Boca Chica - Panama
First time I have seen this spider after living here for a year. It was blacker than other spiders I have seen here. And the first one I found on my arm while I was in my bed. Recent construction in my area forced me to spray and for the first time I have had almost no bugs of any kind in my home for 4 days... Until this showed up on my arm in my bed. It was slow moving - not fast like the many wolf spiders I have had around. I have not seen any webs of significance. It seemed non-aggressive, but it could have been subdued by the recent spraying with pesticides around the edges of my home. I believe I had a wandering tropical spider in the spare room before spring - with the animals I have in my home - my pets - dogs - service dog to be exact, I worried about their safety inside the home and am very concerned about this one being in my bed or my very curious dog sleeps with me. This is the first time on this site I'm sorry if I've not been helpful - but I will not be sleeping tonight. Thanks to all
