I have found several of these stunning wolf spiders, but can't tell if they are Hogna helluo, Hogna Lenta, or Hogna carolinensis, (or Hogna ???).

Can anyone help with an ID?

Found in Florida, USA, 40 min west of Gainesville ...

Jack

Hi Jack,

while i canīt help you out with this one, maybe some background information why nobody seems like feeling to reply:

Lycosidae are often times extremely hard to track down to species level - easy as this.

Your specimen is quite remarkable, though. Very distinctive markings and coloration...

Do you have more pictures and information about it? Like

- size, body, leg span?
- gender?
- life style (free roaming or web builder)?

Have you already tried out bugguide.net?

If nothing else helps and you are fine with me forwarding your picture i could try to get the opinion of some US - based arachnologists.

Interesting find, whatever it is...

Regards,

Stefan

I don't know anything about lycosids, but looking through pictures on bugguide and a few other places it looks kind of like some Sosippus species to me.

Hi and thanks for the responses. Sorry, but I have been away for awhile.

This is a female, web-builder, approximately 1" long (body). Males roam.


Jack

PS: Pulk, the first entry you posted looks right, but the other two are not her. I have seen several like this, but these are a bit different.

Hello;

Good guess Pulk;

I haven't been here for awhile, but confirmed w/ Dr. G.B. Edwards that this indeed is a species of Sosippus janus.

He said he would need one in hand to determine the exact subspecies, but you were right on point smile.gif

Thanks,

Jack
