Tetrablemmidaes are known as armored spiders because of the complicated patterns of their abdominal, which resembles the features of body armor. The species of spiders have long been among the little-known animals distributed in tropical or subtropical regions worldwide.

The spiders live in moist leaf litter and the obscure places such as moss and even caves and they prefer very humid habitats,” one of the scientists reported.

The armored spiders typically reside in the soil or dirt and do not build spider webs, but it appears the species has adapted and started hiding in caves as well.  

A total of 29 genera and 125 species has been divided into two subfamilies: Pacullinae: medium to small species; and Tetrablemminae small to minute species of spiders, usually shorter than 2 mm.

The armored spiders were collected from a UNESCO World Heritage Site, South China Karst, discovered by scientists at Chinese Academy of Sciences who were led by Professor Shuqiang LI.

Karst area in Southeast China is a landscape created from the dissolution of soluble rocks, like limestone, gypsum, and dolomite and it is known for their caves, underground drainage systems, and sinkholes, according to The University of Texas.
