Fossil Friday!

This week on Fossil Friday, we're unveiling a celebrity fossil! Well, maybe not a celebrity, but it sure has been making news lately. These two spiders (a lady and gentleman) were originally misidentified as another species. What was that species, and what is the new identification? And can you also identify the fossil's geologic period and location?

Give your answers in the comments below. The person who identifies this fossil first gets bragging rights for the week!
