Arctosa leopardus

    Family : Lycosidae
    Genus : Arctosa
    Size: Female - 9mm / Male - 7mm
    I found this handsome, and quite rare spider, hunting in the damp moss
    around the edge of a dew pond. I sent him to Peter Harvey of the B.A.S.
    and the S.R.S., he ID'd the spider as an adult male A. leopardus.
