Bonjour Matthew, No, you're a bit mixed up. Per the note at the bottom of the lesson: "The masculine forms bel, nouvel and vieil (when in front of a vowel) become the regular masculine plural beaux, nouveaux and vieux." Feminine nouns always use their feminine forms; it's only singular masculine ones that have the special form.

Is it 'nouveaux araignees' rather than 'nouvelles araignees' ?
