I was bitten by this spider, it was black with a red body
Can anyone identify this spider..
ID tentative given this spider looks smashed. This looks like it may have been a Redback Spider (Latrodectus hasselti). Hope you’re feeling OK.
Thanks, that’s what we originally thought it was but looking at pictures on the web Redback only had a red stripe on them so I was confused. I only had mild symptoms such as burning,stinging and itchy around the area for several days. Two weeks later the bite spot started to get red and inflamed and I needed antibiotics it’s now healing. Thanks for your help anyway..
