This creature, the Elegant Golden Jumping Spider (Chrysilla lauta), is a pioneer that’s journeyed all the way from PsYcHeDeLiCa Land, where mushrooms aren’t simply a salad ingredient. This out-of-the-world spider has been known since 1887, yet it has only been described from male specimens. Meaning, what the heck do you think the females look like? Disco ball-wielding sorceresses?
I think I’m going to go play some Beatles now.
