Colbert Gets His Namesake Spider

Aug 1, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Look out Neil Young, Stephen Colbert now has a spider named after him, too. A trapdoor spider special found on the California coast has been dubbed Aptostichus Stephencolberti by East Carolina University Jason Bond, the Associated Press reports. Colbert wanted a spider named for him when he found out Bond named another species after the “Southern Man” rocker. Bond appears as a guest on Colbert’s show Wednesday.
