These spiders, members of the family Araneidae, have white spots on their backs. Another important feature of theirs is that they weave round webs. The spider and the fly here preserved in amber are 50 million years old. With their structures that have remained unchanged for tens of millions of years, these creatures defy the theory of evolution.
