Gorgoglione, province of Matera, Basilicata, southern Italy.
One morning in early June.
All together passionately.
Can you identify the 3 spiders (not a question of determination)?
The one on the left has to do with one of the other two.
The central one is easy, the right one a little less but very common.
Never seen anything like it before.

The middle one is cleaf for sure :D

The right one I would have said Gnaphosidae and the left maybe Agelenidae. But when you said the left one has to do with the others, its maybe an araneophag species, so maybe cybra?

Hi Jon,
two out of three.  ;)
On the right Drassodes sp., in the middle Philaeus chrysops male (obviously), on the left Philaeus chrysops female.
If I had not seen it with my own eyes, I would never have believed such promiscuity possible.
After a few minutes, the spiders emerged quietly from their shelters and each took their own way.
Like in a condominium.
Greetings.
Raf
