Neil Young Spider

Biologist, Jason Bond discovered a new species of trapdoor spider which he has named Myrmekiaphila neilyoungi in honor of his favorite musician. Young joins the ranks of the late rock ‘n’ roll legend Roy Orbison who has a whirligig beetleOrectochilus orbisonorum named to honor him. I’m not sure if this makes spiders lovable or even creepier.
