Lycosidae spec. => Zoropsis cf. rufipes
« am: 2017-12-26 08:18:39 »
These spider I saw in Tijarafe, La Palma (Canaries), 23-02-2015.
My first opinion was Pardosa amentata but I'm not sure about that.
I have only this photo so I hope it's possible to identify with this one.



Best regards,
Johan

Hi Johan and merry Christmas!
I have no real idea about this spider but the small close together posterior median eyes and the lack of long spines on the legs already exclude genus Pardosa. However, I have some doubt whether this is a Lycosidae at all. Check not only the other Lycosid genera from the region but also the Pisauridae and, if present, Ctenidae and Zoropsidae. The last family is the most likely candidate for me, I think O even recognise the ventral spines on metatarsi I

Btw I think there is some consensus in Forum that the Canary islands do not belong biogeographically to Europe, so I think posting further threads in "Arachnids from outside Europe" would be more suitable

Thank you for your fast response Simeon and for you also a merry Christmas.
I haven't much experience with spiders so for me it's a learning process at the moment.
Also I 'll post further threads from the Canary islands in "Arachnids from outside Europe"

Best regards

Of course, it should be Zoropsis rufipes, the canarian endemic species of this genus.
