The taxonomist named the giant spiders Orsonwelles since he said Welles was a giant among moviemakers.
Well that's what he said.
There's a bunch of them within the genus Orsonwelles:
Orsonwelles Bellum (Latin for War)
Orsonwelles Polites (Greek for Citizen)
Orsonwelles Malus (Latin prefix Mal meaning Evil)
Orsonwelles Calx (Latin for Lime)
Orsonwelles Torosus (Latin for full of muscle, knotted > Torose meaning bulging or protuberant - a comment on girth, or some other meaning?)
Orsonwelles Graphicus (Latin for painting, also masterly or skillful)
Orsonwelles Ventus (Latin for Wind)
Orsonwelles Arcanus (Latin for shut, closed, secret - the Welles connection escapes me)
Orsonwelles Iudicium (Latin for Trial)
