Gorgeous. 😀

Note to admin.: genus needed for Lycosa hispanica. Also suggest adding “in retreat/burrow” to attributes list.

Species created, added in retreat.

Really? I see a lot of images of Lycosa in burrows, I can’t vouch for the IDs on them though as so many are stock photos.

Ah, I see. What do I look for to separate L. tarantula?

ItsyBitsy

OK, that makes sense now. I should read that paper. (species request updated)

I see it now. I actually had already downloaded that paper (Planas, Fernández-Montraveta & Ribera, 2013) last night but I missed the very helpful range maps when I gave it a quick look-over.

Awesome, it’s no wonder your IDs are consistently solid.
