Little is known about Hickmanolobus linnaei (above), a tiny leaf-litter-dwelling spider found at a single location in New South Wales, Australia, scientists said in March 2009.

Like most small spiders, the new species eats small invertebrates, study author Mark Harvey, of the Western Australian Museum, said in an email.

H. linnaei is one of 11 new species of spiders discovered during recent research into Australia's biodiversity, Harvey and colleagues said.
