Lonomia electra skin irritation

Contact hives were suffered by the author after making skin contact with the spines of L. electra. The sensation can be described as a burning, itching sensation, comparable to that of a stinging nettle that lasts for a couple of minutes. (Photo credit: Bart Coppens)
