Spider researcher Alireza Zamani says he was inspired to name the new spider species he discovered Loxosceles coheni, in memory of the famous Canadian singer-songwriter, poet, and novelist Leonard Cohen, because “I have been listening to Cohen’s music since a rather young age, especially more so during the recent years, which certainly helped with working during the cold, dark, and long winters of Finland, where I am pursuing my Ph.D. at the University of Turku.” (Photo by Alireza Zamani)
