Yes, mine is Spiders, or Anacrophobia.
Ever since I was a child, I have had a fear of spiders. My Mother suffered from it, and she passed it on to me.

Common misconception is that agoraphobia is fear of open places, confusing Ager- , Agra- ( field for 'open space')
with the Agora ( a market-place for 'crowd').
Agora-phobia is 'fear of CROWDED places' - not the very opposite - 'open spaces'..
I dream, therefore I am.
