This is most likely to be a White-Spotted Jumping Spider, otherwise known as a Daring Jumping Spider or Phippus Auda.

They are not poisonous, although they will bite if they feel intimidated - in the same way as a wasp will sting when intimidated. They do not release venom that is harmful to humans.

As with any insect bite or sting, they may cause an allergic reaction in a small amount of people. These allergic reactions are not usually fatal and symptoms of a reaction usually consist of a lump around the area that was bitten at a greater size than a sting, nausea, headaches and a general feeling of being unwell. This feeling of unwell and other symptoms will pass but if you are concerned, see your GP.

Following a bite from the Daring Jumping Spider, there is usually a slight pain for approximately an hour at the site of the bite. The pain should be minimal and will usually pass after this time.

The Daring Jumping Spider gets its name as it tends to jump on its prey. It is seen as being daring as it preys on insects that are sometimes much larger than itself. These include Black Widow Spiders. They are good at hunting due to their good vision. This is helped by their large eyes that point forward that they use to hunt out their prey.

Here are some tips for identifying a Daring Jumping Spider:

Usual size - 13 - 20 mm
They tend to move side to side, like a crab and also jump.
Found in Southern Canada, United States of America and North Southern America.
They are black with white spots and may also have white markings on its legs.
Large eyes at the front of the spiders head (like a human).

It is a Phidippus audax Most people say they don't attack unless provoked, and their venom is not dangerous to normal people. Some humans are allergic to their venom. Hope this helps.

I don't know what it's called called, but I live in rural Ohio and we have them out here all the time, along with various sizes, shapes, and colors of it's cousins, including the brown recluse. I doubt it's poisonous, but if anybody finds out let me know, My friend just text-ed me and wants to know.

when you have those under your eyes, it means your not getting enough sleep. So you might want to try maintaining a a steady sleep routine. For some people that's not always possible though, so there are creams that you can use to get rid of them. I believe Olay and Dove have some. Also you can use come concealer under your eyes. It won't get rid of them, but it will cover them up. I recommend you Black eye remedy through this you get instant of knowledge about Home remedies for black eye .

Is it dangerous? As in lethal. If it just jumps on you and possibly bites, that's okay. I just found one coming out of my genesis coupe's A/C vent. I was on a highway at the time, and had to pull over and put it in a water bottle. Thanks.
