Dotted Wolf Spider

Posted by Picasa


Pretty against pink...this is Lycosa punctulata (aka Rabidosa punctulata). If she had been a tad more cooperative, or if I had been a tad quicker, I could have shown you her spotted belly. The underside of the abdomen has rather distinctive dots. Alas, she did not think it appropriate to have her underside photographed...

Gorgeous! I clicked on it. That's such a super sharp shot. The hairs on its legs stand out. Out-standing :0)

Blogger no longer allows me to link to my blog, but I came over from membracid.wordpress.com.
