Aphonopelma Johnnycashi is the spider that always wears black - named after the country legend.

Chris Hamilton is the evolutionary biologist who once was terrified of spiders.

To overcome his phobia he bought a tarantella. What at first was a fear, soon became a passion, and for over a decade, Hamilton, along with two colleagues, has mapped America's spider species.

Found 14 new species

During the study, he found 14 new species and has also received the honor of naming them.

One of the species, an all-black variant, was found near the Folsom State Prison.

The Country star Johnny Cash went by the nickname "The Man in Black" and his album "Folsom Prison Blues" is one of his most famous.

The color and the geographic location was perfect, believed spider researcher and Johnny Cash-fan, Chris Hamilton, and gave the new spider species the name "Ahonopelma Johnnycashi".
