Really can't say.: Spider bites can have variable appearances. It might cause a pink or red bump with no symptoms. Or it could itch or be painful. Venomous spiders may cause significant pain radiating far from the site, cramping, sweating, necrosis of tissue or worse if there is an allergic reaction.

Very unlikely: There are no spiders in maine capable of biting humans. See a dermatologist if you need a specific definition of this.
