Arachnophobes look away! Scientists find 50 new species of Australian spider including one the size of a dinner plate

Scientists found dozens of new species in a remote area of Northern Australia
They were on a two-week trek in an area researchers had never surveyed before
Experts found spiders that mimic ants and that 'scuba-dive' to catch prey
Many of the new species are very small and some are venomous

A brush-footed trap-door spider that can walk up glass doors and
windows found as part of the new study. These spiders, known as
Mygalomorphae Barychelidae Idiomata, can grow to the size of
dinner plates
