This video from England is called Nothophantes horridus: the Horrid Ground Weaver, Plymouth January 2016.
Another video from England which used to be on YouTube used to say about itself:
Plymouth native, the horrid groundweaver, faces extinction
13 January 2015
Conservationists are warning that despite its trifling size and shy demeanour action needs to be taken to protect Nothophantes horridus, which is found only in a single British city.
From Buglife in Britain:
One week to save Critically Endangered spider
A new development is being proposed in a local wildlife site which is home to one of world’s most endangered spiders.
Originally the development of 57 houses in Radford Quarry, Plymouth was refused by the City Council but the applicant is appealing the decision and a planning inquiry is due to start on the 20th January. Buglife are asking for your help to stop this development by signing this petition.
We are asking for the planning inspectorate dealing with the appeal to dismiss the inquiry for the development at Radford Quarry, Plymouth.
Why is this important?
Plans to build new houses in an old quarry in Plymouth, could push a Critically Endangered spider, the Horrid ground weaver (Nothophantes horridus), even closer to extinction. We only have one week left to make sure the planning inspectorate know how critical this site is to the spider’s survival.
This tiny money spider is only found in Plymouth and nowhere else in the world. It is only known at three sites, one of which has already been lost to development. The proposed development, for 57 new houses in Radford Quarry in Plymouth, would destroy the second site and a vital ‘green lung’ of Plymouth.
