ConvictConvict is a concept with various meanings recognized in the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE). When it has its etymological origin in the Latin word reus, is usually used with reference to the individual who, having committed a fault, must be punished or is it actually fulfilling a pain. Therefore, an inmate is someone who is accused of something or who has already been sanctioned.

For instance: “The prisoner will be transferred to court so you can hear the judge’s verdict “, “Three inmates escaped from a maximum security prison in Alabama”, “As a lawyer, I consider that this inmate cannot enjoy conditional freedom since he is still dangerous for society”.

In some countries, the individual who demonstrates difficulties to socialize or to adapt to the environment: “That boy is a criminal who never talks to anyone”, “I cannot have an inmate in the company: I need people who know how to work as a team”, “The inmates of this neighborhood always cause problems”.

A person rude, tattered or raggedy can also be defined as area: “As a young man I was a bit guilty, but then I became elegant”, “You are a criminal! Take care of your vocabulary “, “With a naked torso and broken shoes, the inmate entered the restaurant and ordered a soup”. In none of the cases mentioned so far, does the person qualified as a prisoner call himself this way, or at least not with pride.

The Salmo trutta or trout, the spider Phobetinus Reo and the plant that is part of the gender Tradescantia, finally, they receive the common denomination of prisoner: “Yesterday I caught several prisoners”, “In this lake there are a lot of prisoners”, “Look how beautiful the inmate’s flowers”.

The spider known as Phobetinus Reo It belongs to the Mimetidea family, specifically the genus Araneomorphs, and is found in North America and Kenya. Two species recognized within this family are the Reo eutypus and the Reo latro. To understand more about these animals, it is necessary to define the following two concepts:

Convict* araneomorphs: This is a suborder of the Araneae (commonly called spiders), and have the main characteristic of presenting their chelicerae (their sharp mouthparts, used to take the food firmly) arranged diagonally, so that they cross each other at the tip, unlike the chelicerae of the Mygalomorphae, who have them oriented downwards;

* mimetidae: also known as mimetids, are a family of spiders belonging to the suborder just mentioned that gathers around 200 species dispersed in 12 genera. It is worth mentioning that mimetid spiders feed on other spiders. Its body is usually a combination of brown and yellow, although it can be reddish.

The Salmo trutta, common or common trout, is the most common fish within the salmonid family. As a curious fact, it is among the 100 most harmful species on the planet, according to a list prepared by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. It’s about a fish of great corpulence (it can weigh 14 kg), capable of adapting to different environments, partly thanks to the aggressiveness with which it defends its territory.

Herbaceous and perennial plants that are part of the genus Tradescantia are included in the family of commeliniaceae and they are divided into 74 species, which can be found in almost all the countries of the American Continent. They came to Europe under the name “ornamental plants” in 1600, since that is the use they usually have, both there and in other parts of the world. On the other hand, they are of great importance for the economy, since they serve as bioindicators to determine if there are mutagens (agents capable of generating mutations) in the environment.
