TARENTULA HISPANICA also known as Spanish spider, wolf spider, hunting spider
The European wolf spider, Lycosa tarentula, said to have caused the historical phenomenon of “Tarantism”-(a psychological illness characterized by an extreme impulse to dance, prevalent in southern Italy from the 15th to the 17th century, and widely believed at the time to be caused by the bite of a Tarantula), is the official medicinal source of the homeopathic remedy Tarentula Hispanica.
