Male pardosa hortensis => Pardosa cf. agricola
« am: 2021-01-03 10:36:18 »
I found this species in heathland on a sandhill.
Date : 08-04-2020
Location : Belgium, Genk, Nature reserve - De Maten
I think this is the male of pardosa hortensis but a second opinion is welcome.



Best regards

If you have a male with a clear-cut yellowish margin pattern and median band on the prosoma (even scattered in some pieces), it is usually a species of the P. monticola-group. The pattern in P. hortensis is more "washy".

Ok. Thank you for your answers.
I think it stays difficult between these 2 species for me but it helps.
