    Une nouvelle espèce d'araignée a été découverte

David Sillam-Dussès (MCF HDR, chaire d’excellence, membre du LEEC), ayant découvert une nouvelle espèce d’araignée lors de l’une de ses missions en Guyane, voit son nom attribué à ce joli arachnide : dorénavant, il s’appellera donc Charinus sillami.

Deux scientifiques ont travaillé sur cette araignée, Florian Reveillion et Pierre-Olivier Maquart. Vous pouvez voir deux exemples de cet amblypyge sur la photo ci-contre, ou lire leur article pour en savoir plus sur animal.
