Date of discovery: 10 May, 11 am.
Habitat: 800 m - in the countryside, in a small meadow with low vegetation, in its sack under a stone.

Ciao.
Is it possible to identify this female (adult?) Drassodes sp.?
Thanks.
Raf

Hey Raf;

I doubt this one is adult. Gnaphosidae belong to the RTA-clade and females should therefor have some hardened edge around/at the epigyne where the male retrolateral tibial apophysis can attach, I think.
As I can't see any structures like that, I'd assume the specimen is subadult.

Greetings,
Clemens
