Maevia eureka: A new species of Jumping Spider from Miocene Chipas Amber.

Jumping Spiders, Salticidae, are the largest family of Spiders, with about 5800 described species in 600 genera, roughly 13% of all described species. They are noted for their exceptional vision, possibly the best of any Arthropods, which is used in hunting, with these Spiders being active hunters that stalk their prey before catching it with a final leap, as well as in mating, with many species having evolved elaborate courtship rituals. 

In a paper published in the journal Peer J on 25 July 2017, Francisco Riquelme of the Laboratorio de Sistemática Molecular at the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos, and Miguel Menéndez-Acuña of the Centro de Investigación en Biodiversidad y Conservación, also at the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos, describe a new species of Jumping Spider from a peace of Miocene amber from Chiapas State in Mexico.

The ambers of Chiapas State, Mexico, were laid down in the Miocene (and possibly Oligocene) in shallow marine environments. The amber is thought to be derived from resin secreted from a Leguminous tree of the genus Hymenaea, which lived in mangrove forests along the Caribbean shoreline. This amber is almost identical to amber produced in similar mangrove forests during the Miocene in the Dominican Republic and to a lesser extent other parts of the Caribbean, and a thriving, and sometimes illegal, trade in these fossils, combined with poor recording by commercial fossil collectors (particularly those acting illegally) means that fossils in Caribbean amber derived from private collections can be hard to connect to their point of origin.

The new species is placed in the extant genus Maevia, which contains a number of extant species from North America, and possibly South America and Australasia, but no previously described fossil species, and given the specific name eureka, refering to the 'eureka moment' that occured when the specimen was found, it having been dug out by habd during the excavation of a latrine for use during fieldwork. The species is described from a single female specimen, 3.6 mm in length and pale brown in colour, with white markings, preserved in a piece of almost clear amber.

Maevia eureka. Amber inclusion as seen in raw condition using regular light. (A) Dorsal view. (B) Ventral. Scale bar 2 mm. Riquelme & Menéndez-Acuña (2017).

      Hi everyone, i am Alexis Ohanian am so glade coming back to this great forum to testify about the help i received from Chester Brian. I was in desperate need of a loan in other to be free from debt and financial bondage that was place on me by my ex husband. It was really bad that i have to seek for help from Friends,family and even my bank but on one could assist me because my credit score was really bad. So i was browsing with my computer and saw some testimonies from people Chester Brian assisted with a loan, then i decided to contact him on his email {bettermentfunding@gmail.com}, then i received a mail from them and i did all that was asked from me. To my greatest surprise they transferred to my account the loan i requested and now i am so happy clearing my debt and have also started a business with the remaining amount to take care of myself and family. If you need a loan do contact the best loan lender of all time Chester Brian on his email: {bettermentfunding@gmail.com}
