Indische Forscher haben eine neue Spinnenart nach Godric Gryffindors sprechendem Sortierhut aus Harry Potter benannt. Passt.

The nocturnal arachnid, found in India’s Western Ghat mountain range, looks so much like the Sorting Hat it’s tempting to wonder where J.K. Rowling got her inspiration from. Indian researchers discovered the spider, which they named Eriovixia gryffindori, in 2015, and named it after Godric Gryffindor, the one-time owner of the hat in the Harry Potter books.
