A new species of widow spider has been discovered by researchers in Africa – and it can be deadly in the world.
Phinda button spider, the first widow discovered for 28 years, is closely related to the very dreaded black widow.
And Barbara Wright, who discovered the new species, thinks her bite will pack the same kind as his famous cousin who requires hospital treatment.
She said: "Although we have not yet performed the toxicology of this species, all widow spiders Latrodectus) will be considered medically important because of their potent neurotoxic poison.
" The effect of poison on humans may include pain, palpitations , sweat and vomiting. "
Formerly discovered species of widowhood make up three of the world's nine thinnest spiders, as mentioned by the Encyclopædia Britannica.
But in fact, Latrodectus hardly rarely causes death – and the same is likely to For the new species

"Bites are rarely fatal," Wright said. "And our new species is extremely shy, reclusive and docile."
"There have been no records about someone being bitten. For a year I had over 5,000 of them in my home with my family and we were always safe. "
The Phinda button is native to South Africa's critically endangered sand forests and could be the world's largest widowhood – It is certainly the largest in Africa.
It can be said to be distinct from other spiders of its kind because the woman has bright red marks both the back and her underbelly instead of having them somewhere .. 19659016] In the arachnivers this is a great discovery
The spider also creates a unique purple colored egg bag Each contains about 600 hatchlings.
"In the arachnivers, this is a great discovery," says Wright, an entomologist with the Wild Tomorrow Fund, a conservative charity.
"Finding a new species of widowhood in a critical threatened standard of living really emphasizes the importance of its protection.
"The Phin da Button spider is a red flag to raise awareness of the importance of habitat protection."
Dr Ian Engelbrecht, an arachnid expert at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, helped Wright confirm that the species was new, the discovery called "spectacular".
"When Barbara showed me the first picture, I could literally not believe that this spider existed and that it was unknown to science," he said.

"Widowed and scarce spiders are medically important to humans, so it is important to understand their diversity. "
Britain's infamous fake widowhood, named after its similarity to the black widow, is actually not part of the same family, although it has also been blamed for painful bites on humans.
