I was bitten by a brown spider that almost looked like a black widow... Should I be concerned?
I live in California, Covina, and I have NEVER seen a brown spider that looks like that... except in Texas... Keep in mind that my idea isn't far fetched because my uncle actually drove from a rural town in Texas (Cooper) all the way to my hometown. It was about average in male size, and looked a lot like a black widow, but was brown. I killed it as soon as I felt the sting, so I didn't get to see it's underside. Anyway, I plan to go to a hospital in a bit, I'm gonna ask my buddy to drive me there, but it won't be a while till he gets here. I could really use some leads so I can tell them the species possibilities ASAP! Thanks guys.
