New nematode parasite of tarantulas

A few years ago a tarantula breeder asked for our help in diagnosing an infection occurring in her tarantulas. This week the results of our study describing Tarantobelus jeffdanielsi, a newly described nematode parasite of tarantulas was published. Congratulations to Jake Schurkman, Kyle Anesko,  Irma Tandingan De Ley, and Joaquin Abolafia, for their great work on this nematode!
