Paper published: Tisaniba, a new genus of jumping spiders from Borneo

Junxia Zhang’s and my paper on Tisaniba is out!  This is a genus, newly discovered, of small dark shiny jumping spiders that live in leaf litter in Borneo.  When we were catching them, we didn’t know what they were, so we called them “Tiny Shiny Blacks”.  The generic name was chosen to sound a bit like that name.
