Paleontology World has the article for you!

The Spidersaur: Largest Ever Fossil of Jurassic-Era Arachnid Found Perfectly Preserved After 165m Years

But despite the amazing nature of this spider, it’s very sad to see the creature was not nearly giant enough, and was “roughly the size of the spider’s modern-day descendants, with a body one-inch long and more than half an inch wide, and legs that stretch to 2.5in.” It’s a fantastic article, with comparisons to modern day spiders, plenty of information- and a little bit of gross.
