discovered-speciesIO9 has reported that two new species were discovered in southeast Queensland, Australia, by University of Berkeley grad student Madeline Girard.

Girard affectionately gave the nickname “Sparklemuffin” to one of the species, Maratus jactatus, which has bluish and reddish stripes on its abdomen. She nicknamed the other species “Skeletorus” for its white markings on a black background, which make it look a bit like a skeleton.
