Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Woodlouse Hunter (Dysdera crocata). I usually find them under rocks, not sure how one found it’s way onto your back. They’re not considered to be of medical significance (*everyone’s immune system is different though*), they do have big jaws however because they specialize in eating pill bugs. I bet they can give a real good pinch! Hope your recovery is quick and uneventful.

Glad to hear you recovered without incident!
