G. hispida is with nearly 5cm in lenght the biggest Mardxarcaudid, it lives only on the branches of Mundodendralis

Only one animal is able to hunt this beautiful little beasts. It's a small species of sicagnathids with very long and sharp mandibles which they use to carefully shear the Mardxarcaudids toxic bristles away.
