Thomisidae on umbrellifera
« am: 2021-09-02 18:47:53 »
Gorgoglione, Province of Matera, Basilicata, Southern Italy.

Date of discovery: 2 September, 11 am, sunny.
Habitat: 900 m - inside a dry umbrellifera, along a path between arid meadows and pastures.
Dimensions: see photo.

Greetings to the forum.

I think I came across a specimen of Psammitis sp. again, with a preference for ninnii due to the absolutely not sandy habitat.
But I can't figure out if it's an adult female or if it's still immature ... and obviously I'm not sure at all about the species I hypothesized.
Who helps me?
Thanks.
Raf

The strong resemblance (dorsal and ventral) to the female of Xysticus grallator can also be seen from Pierre's photos.
Although my spider is an immature female.
It could be?

Could be but I can't exclude a Psammitis.

Thanks anyway Simeon.

The finding of X. grallator (if it will be confirmed) and the resemblance of my spider to this species but also to Psammitis have complicated things.

Currently, if Tobias (who knows Psammitis, if I remember correctly) or someone else doesn't solve the rebus, the best (but the worst for my research) solution is Thomisidae, immature female.
Right?
