Does anyone know if there are any true spiders in Nicaragua with hematoxic venom?

According to the World Spider Catalog, Sicarius rugosus is found in El Salvador and Costa Rica:

http://research.amnh.org/iz/spiders/catalog/SICARIIDAE.html

As El Salvador and Costa Rica are separated by Nicaragua, the range of S. rugosus likely runs through at least parts of Nicaragua also.

Also, the Catalog lists Cheiracanthium inclusum simply as "New World"--without any specific countries of habitation, so it is fair to infer that it is present in Latin America as well as the USA / Canada.

Loxosceles boneti is found in El Salvador.

Loxosceles rufipes is in Guatamala and Panama.

Hope that helps!
