Comments: Created by Jean-Pierre Targete.
To the best of my knowledge, these guys never appeared anywhere else, and were created solely for the 1995 Fleer Ultra Spider-Man trading cards. However, given that the Jackal surely had all sorts of crazy schemes on the go, there's nothing to say these guys can't exist on Earth-616.
This subset of the card series was titled "Arachnophobias". Bizarrely, a couple years later, Toy Biz released a line of hybrid Spider-villain action figures under the name "Arachniphobia" [sic]. Freaky.
Big thanks to Mark Pellegrini for bringing these to my attention and providing scans.
