Phoneutria, commonly known as Brazilian wandering spiders, armed spiders ( armadeiras , as they are known in Portuguese), or banana spiders (not to be confused with the relatively harmless Nephila), are a genus of defensive and venomous spiders of potential medical significance to humans. They are mainly found in tropical South America, with one species in Central America. These spiders are members of the Ctenidae family of wandering spiders.

The Brazilian wandering spiders appear in Guinness World Records from 2010 to present as the world’s most venomous spider.
