Some markings present. Size 21 mm x 22 mm.
Considered to be the most basal of family Tridentidae. Common in grocery stores and other environs. The genus Captospinula has recently caused some controversy when the Board of Synthetic Taxonomy changed several species from their former genus name, Appatens. Though many alterations to scientific names are made because of new data or discovery of error, this decision was made because not a single researcher at HORG could remember what “appatens” actually meant. The change has caused many of the general public to be outraged by this capricious shift in appelation, with small public demonstrations for the old name held in grocery stores, and the sale of ironic t-shirts with “I Remember Appatens” printed on them.
