Naming NotesWinzigespinne is roughly translated "Tiny Spider" to German. The inspiration comes from a reference mentioned in Stephanie Strathdee's novel "The Perfect Predator". It references the nursery rhyme "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly". The old lady swallows a spider to catch the fly. Strathdee compares the fly to an infectious bacteria and the phage the spider to catch that fly.
