Having read Lord of the Rings (or The Hobbit), they named the preciousssssss little spider daddy longlegs (ODeck never fails to correct out scientific mistakes... :) thanks Will) after Tolkienā€™s cave dweller. Not having read LotR or the Hobbit enough, they named it... Iandumoema smeagol. Which is wrong in so many ways I need an even bigger nerd than myself or most of you to explain how wrong it is! (Also - trigger warning for an image of the eight legged little fellow after the break.)
