I am Sachin from MP India. Few minutes back I have gotten bite by a creature. What is its name? Is it harmful if I got bitten by it? Feeling little pain there.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi Sachin, welcome to Biology.SE! Please review our help center page and our species-identification guidelines. You must include the specimen size or some approximation of it. Also, the more specific you are about your location the better -- 2 things: 1) is "MP" Madhya Pradesh? and 2) what kind of habitat did you find this in? (urban, forest, mountain, aquatic, etc.). $\endgroup$ – theforestecologist Jun 27 '19 at 13:53
  • $\begingroup$ Please review our tags as microbiology doesn't apply at all, but specieis-identification certainly does. You can click the edit button below your post to both edit your post and your tags. I will edit the tags for you, but you must edit your post asd I requested in my last comment to avoid having it closed. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – theforestecologist Jun 27 '19 at 13:53

That is an insect, in the order Zygentoma. These are harmless, and do not bite. If you were bitten by something, it was not this?

  • $\begingroup$ Who is "we". I find long-winded, padded answers extremely annoying when all the person wants to know it whether a bug can hurt them. Go ahead and remove it. I answered the question. $\endgroup$ – Karl Kjer Jun 29 '19 at 12:03
