8 new species of spider with legs Whip Like Scientists Find
#Cosmoread: Long, whiplike legs that are actually a pair of sophisticated environmental sensors known as an unusual whip spider tailless whip scorpion called truth of spider. Scientists recently that the long-legged spiders are native to Brazil eight new species described, almost double the number of known species in the genus Charinus.
Only six of their eight legs to walk whip spiders use their ‘whipping’ reserve – sometimes spiders “can reach a body length – discover the world around them and the victim, putting a touch and chemical signals through the combination of.
Thanks to the discovery of new species, Brazil now boasts the world’s largest variety of whip spiders. But where forest ecosystems are threatened by human development in which new species, and the researchers suggested that stronger conservation measures whip spiders urgent order “to protect habitats, and their habitats are destroyed before and I needed to have more species.
170 Whip Spider
There are 170 known species of whip spiders in the US are found in tropical regions of the world. According to the researchers, the Amazon
region – its diverse habitats, plants and animals are known – were known long before many more whip spider species was suspected of hiding. However, the full extent of whip spiders 10 inches (25 cm) to measure the “whip,” the less than 2 inches (5 cm), and under stones and tree bark, in leaf litter hidden spot are hard to make, and in caves.
Butantan Institute, Brazil’s national museum, Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi, and the Museum of Zoology of the University of São: to identify new species of spider, four Brazilian researchers in the collection of the Natural History Museum focus on collecting samples from Paulo.
Is it a new species of whip spider does it take to describe? Days, weeks, and finally under a microscope spider body parts to investigate and order to find unique and differentiating characteristics compared them with other known species months, said study co-author Gustavo Silva De Miranda.
De Miranda, Macroecology, at the Centre for Development and Climate, a graduate student at the University of Copenhagen, told Live Science that he and his colleagues spider detailed list of performance features, whiplike organs a number of areas, including hunting tips of their legs fork on -catching, groups of their eyes, and women’s penis size, gonopods called.
“We compare these things and see that it is very unique, so we consider it a new species,” De Miranda said.
The genital structures of spider turned out to be a very important point, De Miranda explained. Each whip spider species, especially of the female gonopod size to the size of the man’s sperm sac, corresponded to the correct alignment.
But even as the new whip spider species are described, their behavior and habits in the wild, remain elusive De Miranda said. In one study, he said, for men, women or region wide conflict between the competition – to extend the spiders and their head appendages display off without actually fighting squaring, and the loser (the one with the smaller display) 20 minutes after the retreats stares.
“But there is still a lot to be discovered,” said De Miranda. “We are a group, their relationships, how they are so widespread, they are trying to understand the evolution of morphological evolution.” He said this not only to find new species, but to preserve fragile ecosystems where these spiders live makes it necessary.
“They are not safe, then they will disappear from nature,” De Miranda said.
