    Hey all,
    Apologies if this is the wrong forum. I am currently on a hike in new hamshire and was bitten by the spider in the attached image. I have googled and cannot find a match. Wondering if I should continue the hike, or head back for medical treatment.
    It hurt when but, but does not feel bad now, 20 minutes later.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    While I can't tell exactly what species it is, it is not one of the spiders that is potentially dangerous to humans.
  3. Seems a gravid A.diadematus to me. The venom is nothing serious.
  4. Thank you very much. I am feeling fine and continued on the hike. This is good peace of mind though.

    Thanks again
  5. Thanks, I appreciate your response. It hurt to get bit, but nothing really after that. Pretty sure I am good to go.

    Thanks again
