Comments & ID Thoughts

Right, so I am the world's biggest arachnophobe and I found this little guy in my house, he came out of a couch or clothes that were in a storage unit (later put on the couch) and I nearly weed my pants. He does not look friendly. Please tell me what on earth kind of spider it is and if I should be worried if there are more :) thank you

Sincerely,

Pee in your pants scared of spiders.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 Cool find. This looks like a Scorpion Spider, Platyoides sp.. They’re not considered to be of medical significance, everyone’s immune system is different though.
