I would like to ask you people which is the correct form for express something that is known for a particular characteristic.
This spider is known to be/ for being dangerous
This spider is well-known for being dangerous.
To be known to-infinitive (quasi passive form) is a phrase concerning facts being referred to:
Two men are known to have been killed. = We know that two men were killed.
