Comments & ID Thoughts

From what I've seen, I would say this is some kind of flatties... what do you think?
I spotted it in my garden. It made me jump from my hammock. My wife wanted me to kill it, but if it's a flattie, it's not dangerous for humans, right? Did anyone get a bite from one of these creatures?

Yes, this looks like a Flattie (Selenops sp.). They’re not considered to be of medical significance, everyone’s immune system is different though.
