This spider also belongs to the family Lycosidae and is also known as the “Cuban Tarentula”.
It is a large brown hairy spider founds in Texas and South Carolina. There is an interesting history of this remedy as described by T.F. Allen. Tarentula Cubensis was being shipped to London in a container with alcohol to preserve it. On the way the container broke, the alcohol ran out and the specimen decomposed. However, a potency was made from this specimen and thus Tarentula Cubensis is a very important remedy for Carbuncles, abscesses, boils and swellings.
