Circumstance
Steatoda triangulosa bite report:

Yesterday I had an incident with my adult female Steatoda triangulosa while trying to photograph her. She was on my hand and ended up hanging on a line of silk from my finger. I tried to scoop her back up and being a little impatient I gently grabbed her.. It was a stupid mistake on my part but it felt like tiny pinpricks on the base of my index finger. Over the next few hours I experienced mild burning in my finger and a sort of tingling in my hand (so I was envenomated). After 5 hours or so there were no lasting effects besides a small red mark where I was tagged. There has been controversy on whether these spiders are particularly threatening, and I think it's safe to say that non localized effects are minimal (at least in this case).

Nothing notable.
Aside from mild pain and redness, there were no serious venom effects. After 5 hours or so there were no lasting effects besides a small red mark where I was tagged. There has been controversy on whether these spiders are particularly threatening, and I think it's safe to say that non localized effects are minimal (at least in this case).
