"A large spider with a lethal bite."
Folio Bruti[src]

The whitetail spider is a type of spider known for its lethal bite. It is particularly vulnerable to the Fire-Making Spell, but is resistant towards the Knockback Jinx.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The Whitetail Spider may be based on the White-tailed spider native to Australia and introduced to New Zealand. It is widely believed that the bite of this spider can lead to skin necrosis, however this has not be scientifically proven.
