‘Just Call Me Spider-Man’: New Species Named After Dominic Monaghan

Actor and nature enthusiast Dominic Monaghan encounters numerous multi-legged creatures around the globe on his BBC AMERICA adventure series Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan. But while the show was filming in Laos, a remarkable discovery was made — a previously unknown species of spider. Dr. Peter Jäger, spider expert at the Senckenberg Research Institute in Frankfurt, Germany, stumbled upon the creepy-crawly while traveling with the series as a consultant. He made the announcement yesterday, and a description of the new species is included in the scientific journal Zootaxa.

And the name of this newly introduced arachnid: Ctenus monaghani.
