The two most recent and well know Spider-Man actors, Toby Maguire and Andrew Garfield now have spider species named after them, One being the Filistata Maguirei and the other being the Pritha garfieldi. here is what arachnologists Yuri M. Marusik and Alireza Zamani had to say about it:
“Both new species belong to the family Filistatidae; commonly known as Crevice Weavers, these spiders are mostly nocturnal, prefer living in crevices and holes in rocks and walls and are common in and around houses and may also be found in under barks and tree logs,” wrote Zamani. “Some species build tubular retreats and signal lines which extend out from the entrance of the web in all directions. In some species of the family, unusual longevity and resistance to unavailability of food and water has been recorded. They are venomous, but do not pose a risk to humans. According to the recent studies, Iran has an unusually high diversity of this family.”
What do you guys think of this, and do you think Tom Holland will ever get a spider named after him?
