Loxosceles reclusa

The brown recluse spider Loxosceles reclusa is a much-feared arachnid found in the central United States. The spider's venom can digest flesh, leading to serious medical issues, but recluse spiders are shy and many suspected "bites" are mistaken diagnoses of other skin conditions.
