Default WTH is a megarachnid???

I'm reading Galaxy in Flames currently, and I've been wondering what a megarachnid is... I KNOW they arn't nids... I also know they're obviously some sort of insectoid creature... But what are they, where are they from? Is it like Starship Troopers??

Read Horus Rising. The Megarachnid homeworld appears in that book.

They're basically huge spiders that like to kill people.

sentient, because they also had some sort of wiring and what not in them, so like cyber arachnids if you read the book...
