An uninvited guest visits India
Here is one such thing which was recently spotted in our India from last couple of days.
This is an ultra rare spider genius Neobrettus. He was discovered by a team of researchers based in Mumbai along with a wildlife photographer from West Bengal.
All you need to know about Neobrettus:
These spiders are egg thieves, often stealing and feeding on the eggs of other jumping spiders, including their own kind. These spiders are largely overlooked in their natural environment, most likely as a result of their small size (body length 2.5-3.5 mm) and dull coloration. Hence the natural history of these spiders, their behaviour and distribution, has received little study.
Neobrettus belongs to sub-tribe Spartaeina, a group of unique jumping spiders which also includes the spiders Portia albimanus and Brettus cingulatus.
