Let's please begin with the understanding that I have already sought and received professional medical care.

I have in my travels encountered some critter, which had some venom. It seems this critter was in a particularly generous mood, as it decided to share some of its venom with me. It did so quite anonymously as I never felt a thing. This has left a gorgeous and intriguing example of abstract artwork on the back of my leg. I have looked up and found photos of bite marks for a variety of spider types, and even some wasps and ants. None of them look even similar to my colorful example.

I'm not overly concerned, but I am a little curious. If I posted pics of the mark along with some other details, would this community be able to identify the likely culprit? Would the question be on topic?

    Sounds on-topic to me. – ab2 Jun 25 '16 at 21:49

    As to whether the community could identify it: not a clue, but I suspect it might be difficult. As to whether it is on-topic: If it happened outdoor sure, If it happened indoors - nevermind, we have indoors stuff related to outdoors stuff too and your question might even be useful, for sure interesting. TLDR: We had accepted questions that were far more questionable about its "outdoorsyness". – imsodin Jun 27 '16 at 21:22

  • @imsodin outdoor nasties like to come inside to play too... :) I agree it's fair. – Aravona Jun 28 '16 at 8:31

Yes, as evidenced by 2 year old question that is still open Identify what bit me by the mark it left (note: potentially graphic, but also beautiful, photos)

Posting answer as this quesiton is (was?) in the unanswered queue, and the OP posted the question in the main space that validated it.
