Description: 

This is a bite mark made by a female Trachyaretaon bruekneri.  It bit me on the wrist while I was exhibiting it at Moor Green Show on 25th August 2008.  As a good scientist, I did not stop it when it started to bite but left it to see how much damage it would do.  This photograph was taken six hours after the bite was inflicted.  Phil Bragg, 25.viii.2008.
