Tasmanicosa godeffroyi

Garden Wolf Spider

The characteristic "Union Jack" pattern of radial black and white stripes on the carapace identifies this as a Tasmanicosa species. Tasmanicosa godeffroyi is the only Tasmanicosa species that has been reported in the region by Framenau and Baehr in their 2016 revision of the Tasmanicosa genus. However from the dorsal side it is morphologically indistinguishable from Tasmanicosa leukartii. I am confident that this individual, a female, is T. godeffroyi because its total body length is 23mm. Females of T. leukartii have a max. body length of only 17mm. Note: T. leukartii can also be distinguished from T. godeffroyi by the pale central patch in the otherwise dark abdomen - viewed from the ventral side. I did not however turn this one over to check that!
