New sea spider discovery in the Netherlands


This video is called Creatures of the Deep: Sea Spider.

Translated from the Dutch marine biologists of Stichting ANEMOON:

Another marine animal can be added to the Dutch fauna list: a sea spider with the scientific name Endeis spinosa. It is a species that is common in many places of the Northwest European coast, and in the past it was found several times washed up on Dutch beaches. In August 2014, this sea spider was first found alive by recreational divers on the bottom of the Oosterschelde estuary. This finally proved that the species is present here as a native, and has earned a place on our marine fauna list.
