+grumble+ evil Steatoda nobilis! I was bitten by one a few years back and still have the scar on my upper arm! Looks similar to the average BCG injection scar you get as a teenager, except lower on my arm and on the wrong arm lol, so at least I almost match! Bite itself never actually hurt, it was just afterwards feeling groggy and awful for days with an stingy abscess type thing that was refusing to heal! Kept it as a pet for a while though - the spider, not the abscess!
