cientists still don't know much about the genus, given that "these spiders spend most of their lives in their subterranean nests," the study's lead author, Alireza Zamani, told LiveScience in an email.

So far, only male L. phoenixi spiders have been discovered, but Zamani hopes to find females by tracking the males.

"This way, you would also have the chance of observing and photographing the actual mating behavior, which has not been documented for any Loureedia species yet," Zamani added in his interview with the news outlet.

And who knows? Perhaps females have a bit of Harley Quinn look to them.
