Spiders that are dangerous to human beingsEdit
Atrax robustus Very Dangerous Bites repeatedly and envenomates enthusiastically. (Ａustralian Venomous Funnel-web Spiders aggressively stand their ground.)
Latrodectus mactans Very dangerous Spiders of the genus Latrodectus typically avoid contact if at all possible. (There are many venomous "widow" spiders world-wide. Although venom quantities are lower than Atrax or phoneutria genera, due to their wide distribution they cause more deaths worldwide than any other spiders.)
Tegenaria agrestis Allegedly angerous. May end up in your bed or in undisturbed clothing. (Hobo spiders in the U.S. have been implicated in medically significant bites but the same species is not known to be a problem biter in Europe. They are not aggressive, and necrosis subsequent to bites may be caused by infections.)
