Dark brown spider
« am: 2020-10-09 17:28:58 »
Gorgoglione, Province of Matera, Basilicata, Southern Italy.

Date of discovery: 4 September, 7.30 pm.
Habitat: 800 m - in the village, on the wall of a building. All around there are low vegetation, bushes and shrubs, a concrete clearing.
Size: 5mm measured.

this Zelotinae has a different color from all those so far photographed by me. It is not black but dark brown and brown.
It has significantly larger upper median eyes, so I assume Drassyllus.
If so, only 2 of the 5 Italian species have this color, pumilus and villicus.
Am I right and, if so, can you go further?

Any guesses, guys?
I'm not in a hurry, but I thought this spider might be more easily recognizable than the others by its coloring.
