My mom was about to wash dishes when she all of a sudden got a sharp pain in her finger. She said it felt like being cut by glass. It blistered immediately. We’ve never really seen this bug before. If you could identify this bug, that’d be great. Thank you so much in advance.

Hi Stevie,
This Orange Spotted Assassin Bug or Corsair in the genus
Rasahus is not considered dangerous, however we frequently receive reports from people who have been bitten and we understand the bite is quite painful.

Thanks for the reply. We had no idea what that bug was, so I had saved it in a ziploc just in case my mom had any reaction to the bite.
But thank you for the reply and peace of mind.
