So who gets to smash it now?

So if I kill an endangered species for research it's ok, but if I just squish it I go to jail?

Good work ladies! It's even a trendy spider with chevron stripes.


Congratulations to Stephanie Cobbold and Lori Spears, their advisor(s) and to USU administration!

USU is having a great academic year with a Nobel Prize, a bowl game and now scientific discovery. DesNews, thanks for this article. All Utah citizens should be proud of USU's crescendo of successes.

Stephanie and Lori congratulations to both of you for your hard work on finding a new specie of spiders. Keep up the good work. Trenton Spears

So who got to decide it's name? I'm thinking the SpearCob or CobSpear would have been great

Good on ya, mate! At one to two millimeters in length these guys are pretty small.

I agree with donahoe, USU is having a great year. Great year for a great school!
