Today I found this spider in a heathland in the Netherlands, it was quite a large spider, almost 10mm.
It's a juvenile male, so it must be quite a large species. I think it's a Gnaphosidae, maybe Dassodes?
But I'm not sure, it's a difficult family for me..

best wishes, Frank

Yes, a Drassodes subadult male

How to separate from Drassodex? The genus seems not to be recorded in the Netherlands yet, but you can't be sure.

I may have seen Drassodex only on photos in Wiki, but their head region seems to be wider and more elevated. Also, they seem brighter (could be just on photos). And the cymbium of D-x is wider.

Plus, the spider here looks just like the D-s I know from here.

Why did you not mention such traits/characters in your first answer? You often ask for a such an explanation (for example in the Heliophanus-Thread).

I am sorry, my fault. I will try to do it every next time I remember to, or if I am asked to, as now :)

Thanks Simeon and Tobias, than it must be a Drassodes, indeed there are no recordings of Drassodex species in the Netherlands, nor Belgium.
