New Spider Species Named After Sachin Tendulkar: Report


“I named (one spider) Marengo sachintendulkar because Sachin happens to be my favourite cricketer,” Dhruv Prajapati was quoted as saying by the Times of India. “Another name is inspired by Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara who was a crusader in creating awareness about education in Kerala.”

Prajapati is a junior researcher with the Gujarat Ecological Education Research (GEER) Foundation. He said that the two new species are part of the Indomarengo and Marengo genus of Asian jumping spiders.
