Does anyone know about insects in Baja California?

I got a very painful insect bite while driving from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos and was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or knows anything about insects local to the area. I can't find anything on the internet.

thanks!

seasea,

Im just taking a guess that it could have been a spider. I have been bitten while walking through the desert and was told it probably was a spider. Sorry i couldnt help more. Someone here will have better info. Suerte.. jim

I would tend to think spider also. If it is still bothering you, I would go to the Dr. I was bitten on an Orient trip many years ago, and it ended up being diagnosed as a possible brown recluse bite-just from the way it progressed! Very bad deal.
