Green Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans)

The green lynx spider very seldom bites humans, and when it does, its venomous bite, though [painful, is not deadly] but may cause surrounding (edema) swelling up to 7"-10" in diameter.

The species is primarily of interest for its usefulness in agricultural pest management, for example in cotton fields. The spiders have been observed to hunt several moth species and their larvae, including some of the most important crop pests, such as the bollworm moth (Heliothis zea), the cotton leafworm moth (Alabama agrillacea), and the cabbage looper moth (Trichoplusia ni). However, they also prey on beneficial insects, such as honey bees.
