Abstract

We report a case of envenomation by Trachelas tranquillus (Hentz) in Connecticut in late September 2013. The bitten subject, a 50 yr-old-female Caucasian, reported a painful wasp-like sting and brushed the spider from her leg. An erythematous macule formed at the site of the bite. The macule was gone by the next day and there was no associated necrosis. The spider was collected and brought to our laboratory for identification. This is the second confirmed case of envenomation by T. tranquillus and the only case reported from Connecticut.
