The autumnal spider is a small brown spider with a darker head than the rest of its body. It has all eight legs. It was discovered on the autumnal equinox of 2020 on the ceiling of a bathroom by the discoverer Zylucas Ilwirfskas.


The autumnal spider was first discovered above a door, which it likely came in through. It prefers to live in the corner of the ceiling, though it will also spend a little bit of time on the top inch of the wall next to the ceiling. It has been observed eyeing up a bug of unknown species for dinner.

The autumnal spider in the picture did not spin the webs in the picture, but it is hypothesized [by who?] that they may have made it feel right at home.


Legend has it that anyone who sees the autumnal spider on the autumnal equinox will get a girlfriend within one week.
