Need your help  please! What is this spider and can he bite?

    • Hi Lilika,

       

      The spider shown appears to be a Tegenaria, but as to which species exactly, I doubt that can be determined from the photo.

       

      I would be very surprised if that was the spider responsible for your bites. They can bite, but usually just a pin prick, no after effects from envenomation.

       

      Are there clear puncture marks? (Sorry photos are a bit grainy). How big are the marks?

       

      I'd have a good look in, under & around the bed/sheets etc. To be bitten twice in the same bed may suggest something residing very close by?
