“Jurassic spider fossils used to be extremely rare finds. The first was discovered in Russia and described in 1984—another was found three years later. But that remained the totality of the fossil record.
Then, in the twenty-first century, farmers in the area of Daohugou, China—just inside Inner Mongolia—began turning up Jurassic-period arachnids on a hillside. Because of the proliferation of these Chinese discoveries, these days a few hundred specimens are known to science.”
