Several Carboniferous spiders were members of the Mesothelae, a primitive group now represented only by the Liphistiidae. [66] The mesothelid Paleothele montceauensis, from the Late Carboniferous over 299 million years ago, had five spinnerets. [69] Although the Permian period 299 to 251 million years ago saw rapid diversification of flying insects, there are very few fossil spiders from this period. [66] The main groups of modern spiders, Mygalomorphae and Araneomorphae, first appear in the Triassic well before 200 million years ago.

The ones that are still alive in the spring leave the cocoon. Truly though, the longest insect has to be the stick insect (Phobaeticus kirbyi) from Asia. The inflated blister beetle has an inflated abdomen and a small head. Huge monocultures of crops my be easy to work and run but they are a death knell to the biodiversity of the land.
