A new wolf spider species of the genus Artoria from Western Australia (Araneae: Lycosidae)WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 1 years agoABSTRACT – A new Australian wolf spider species, Artoria linnaei, is described from south-western Western Australia. Artoria now includes 24 species, of which 20 are found in Australia. Artoria linnaei is common in suburban parks, reserves and gardens in and around Perth but also occurs further to the south. It appears to prefer moderately moist, low vegetation such as grassy areas among bushes and trees. The species is seasonal; adult males are active from late winter (July) into early summer (December) with a distinct peak in September, and females have been found from August to January peaking in November.
