Scientists have discovered a new species of spider in Miami, United States. This spider is so poisonous that one of its bites can force humans to charge themselves because of the pain. This spider resembles that of the black tarantula found in Brazil. It is called Pine Rockland Trapadar Spider (Ummidia richmond). It was first seen at the Miami Zoo, Florida.
Female spiders are larger than males
The size of the male spider is equal to the current one rupee coin. While female spiders are two to three times the size. The Rockland Trapader Spider is a netweaver spider. So that it remains hidden from its predators and eats the prey trapped in the trap. These types of spiders can stay in one place for decades throughout their lives.
Frank Ridley, chief curator of the Miami Zoo, said that to me it looked like a shiny little black tarantula. These species are similar to ambush predators. They weave nets on a soft, sandy surface and wait for their prey to be trapped. During this time, they hide well. When the prey is trapped, these spiders come out of their shells to catch it.

This spider is related to the tarantula
Dr Rebecca Godwin of Piedmont College, Georgia, reported that it is part of the existing genus Eumidia, which belongs to Tarantula and was first described in 1875 by Swedish arachnologist Temerlan Thorel. He said I had no doubt it was a new species. The article related to this spider was published in the Zookey Journal.
