Armored spiders (Tetrablenmidae) are medium to small arachnid species that derive its name from the complex pattern of covering they have on their abdomen, which is very similar to body armor. These tropical and subtropical spiders are mainly found in soil and leaf litter but the new species were seen inhabiting caves. The cave species has no eyes.
Two of the new species belonging to the genus Tetrablemma have only 4 legs that distinguish them easily from the rest.
