Spider in the stadium => Meta sp.
« am: 2020-01-27 16:02:12 »
Gorgoglione, Province of Matera, Basilicata, southern Italy.

Discovery date: December 27th, 12:00.
Habitat: 1000 m - crack in the wall.
Dimensions: about 1 cm.

Hello everybody.
This is another spider with identification problems in Italy.
I found it in the stands of an abandoned football field, in a pine and fir grove, standing at the entrance of a crack in the wall, on top.
I only managed to take one photo, because the spider immediately hid in the crack.
Have you ever seen such a specimen?
I do not know where to begin.
Thank you.
Raf

Thanks Simeon.
I imagined it and I also suggested it in Italy, but without getting an answer.
Is it not possible to determine the species as well, since only M. menardi and M. bourneti live in Italy? It seems to me that the first species has annulated legs (like my spider) while the second does not.
How about?

Greetings to the forum.
In archiving this spider as Meta sp. (since there are no opinions other than Simeon's), I have one last question to ask: is the spider in the photo a young specimen, or a sub-adult, considering its size?
Thank you.
