Conservation charity Buglife is celebrating some exciting news. Surveys for Britain’s rarest spider, the Horrid ground-weaver, have discovered a new population in Plymouth. And, for the first time ever, this elusive spider has been captured in a photograph – alive! The Horrid ground-weaver spider (Nothophantes horridus) has become somewhat of a local celebrity, after a successful Crowdfunder appeal started by Buglife raised over £10,000 in public donations. The funding has supported new surveys for this elusive species across Plymouth and South Devon.
