Introducing LouReedia

Sci-News reports a new genus of spider was discovered near Israel. Because of its velvet appearance and underground living, biologists called it ‘LouReedia’.
Lou Reed is not the first to have spider name, Neil Young and Frank Zappa had spiders named after them. Mick Jagger had a pair of fossils and Jerry Garcia has a wood roach named after him.
