Every once in a while a mysterious creature comes my way and I am completely stumped!  I have absolutely no idea what this spider is!!  Look how weird her abdomen is!!  It curled up in different ways when she moved!  How does she even have organs in there?
  Any clues, anybody?!?!

Tiputini, Ecuador

THIS IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING I HAVE EVER SEEN

Oh, this is a Argyrodes colubrinus! (Had to look that name up again)

They’re also known as ‘Whip Spiders’, but don’t expect to find em under that name too easily, as it’s infinitely more branded to whip-tailed scorpions.

They’re really cool and unique!

Scientist underlines threat of inevitable ‘solar super-storms’

In this month’s issue of Physics World, Ashley Dale from the University of Bristol warns of the “catastrophic” and “long-lasting” impacts of “solar super-storms” and the dangers we face if the threat continues to go unnoticed.
Dale, who was a member of an international task force – dubbed SolarMAX – set up to identify the risks of a solar storm and how its impact could be minimized, explains how it is only a matter of time before an exceptionally violent solar storm is propelled towards Earth. Such a storm would wreak havoc with our communication systems and power supplies, crippling vital services such as transport, sanitation and medicine.
"Without power, people would struggle to fuel their cars at petrol stations, get money from cash dispensers or pay online. Water and sewage systems would be affected too, meaning that health epidemics in urbanized areas would quickly take a grip, with diseases we thought we had left behind centuries ago soon returning," Dale writes.

As I said, here is the new Stellarmass species! The Anansi!
The Anansi share a planet with the Atagi, and are active traders and allies with them. Anansi in general are a very shy and curious species and tend to avoid conflict when they can. They never show their fangs unless scared or about to eat tasty bugs. Their bright colors show that they have a powerful venom. The dreadlock like ‘hair’ are actually sensory organs and the little feather like things on their abdomens can be used to signal things like danger or willingness to mate. They have 8 eyes but four of them are tiny and only sense light.
They are expert weavers and make some of the most beautiful and strongest cloth in the galaxy. They can also spin their silk into super strong rope or even into things like bandages and nets.
Where Atagi can live in the desert or jungle, Anansi are only found in the planet’s jungles.
