Today, while working on organizing and updating VMNH's vast myriapod collection, VMNH Collections Assistant Dr. Jackson Means came across this stunning spiny orb-weaver spider tucked in a sample of Tanzanian millipedes. This long-winged kite spider (Gasteracantha versicolor) is the first of it's kind in VMNH's invertebrate collection.
