A while back, someone mentioned 'ogre spiders' as spiders capable of
inflicting a painful bite -

I have searched the web but have not been able to find a photo. If anyone
has a website or a picture they could send me I would appreciate it. I saw
some truely frightening looking spiders while tramping about the swamps last
week and I really like to know what to watch for. Some of the spiders in
the cypress swamps made me feel like Bilbo Baggins in Mirkwood.

Except for the fact I'm 6'3"
