20 February 2019 New species and new records of ant-eating spiders from Mediterranean Europe (Araneae: Zodariidae)
Author Affiliations +

The following new Zodarion species are described from Italy: Zodarion pantaleonii Bosmans & Pantini spec. nov. and Z. pseudonigriceps Bosmans & Pantini spec. nov., both from Sardinia, Z. montesacrense Bosmans spec. nov. and Z. valentii Bosmans, Loverre & Addante spec. nov., both from Puglia, Z. valentii also occurs in Sicily. Zodarion sp., described from Greece in 2009, is the unknown female of Zodarion zorbaBosmans, 2009. Zodarion gracilitibiale Denis, 1934 is new for Italy. New records for 43 other European Zodarion species are presented.

The genus Zodarion Walckenaer, 1833 has a Palaearctic dis–tribution and currently consists of 163 species (World Spider Catalog 2018). Especially the Mediterranean region appears to be rich in species of this genus. In the western part (Iberi–an Peninsula), 32 species have been reported (Bosmans 1994, Pekár et al. 2003, Pekár & Cardoso 2005). In the Central Me–diterranean region (France, Italy) 19 species have been repor–ted (Bosmans 1997) and in the Balkans 42 species (Bosmans 2009). In the present contribution, four new species are de–scribed including new distribution data for 43 other species.

Material and methods

Most of the material was collected by the first author du–ring different collecting trips to the Mediterranean region. The material from Sardinia is the result of a project on faunal studies in Sardinia and was collected by M. Verdinelli and A. Sassu. The material from Greece originates from fieldwork included in a faunistic project (SPIDOnetGR, ARISTEIA II Programme, NSRF 2007–2013) lead by M. Chatzaki. A few colleagues sent material for identification, and these data are included as well.

Specimens were examined and illustrated using a Nikon SMZ1270 stereomicroscope. Further details were studied using an Olympus CH–2 stereoscopic microscope with a dra–wing tube. Photographs were taken with a Moticam 5MP ca–mera attached to a Realux stereoscopic microscope. Somatic morphology measurements were taken using a scale reticule in the eyepiece of the stereo microscope and are in mm. Mea–surements of the legs are taken from the dorsal side. Taxono–mic descriptions follow the format of Bosmans (1994, 1997, 2009).

Left structures of palps are depicted. Eye measurements were based on the lens at its widest point. Female genita–lia were excised using sharpened needles. These where then transferred to clove oil for examination under the microscope. Male palps were detached and transferred to glycerol for ex–amination under the microscope. Later, palps and epigynes were returned to 70 % ethanol.

Type material and important reference material is depo–sited in different museums as listed in the descriptions of the species, the other material is deposited in the collection of the collectors or in one of the collections listed below.

  • Etymology. The name of the species is derived from the type locality, adjective.

  • Diagnosis. This small Zodarion species is a member of the pusio group as defined by Bosmans (1997) and is closely re–lated to Zodarion emarginatum (Simon, 1873). The species is easily distinguished by the terminally bifid tibial apophysis of the male palp.

  • Description. Measurements: Male: Total length 1.54; proso–ma 0.82 long 0.62 wide.

    Colour (Fig. 1a): The holotype is recently moulted and the natural colours are not fully developed yet. Prosoma pale yel–lowish, margin, foveal spot and anastomosing striae darkened and eye region black; opisthosoma dark sepia, venter and oval spot above spinnerets whitish.

    Eyes: AM = 1 (0.69); AL = PL = 0.47; PM = 0.5; a = 0.38; b = d = 0.19; c = 1; d = 0.3; MOQ: AW = 0.91PW; L = 0.87 PW. Opisthosoma: with a row of 17 spines before the spinnerets, not much thicker than the normal hairs.

    Palp (Fig. 1b–e): Tibial apophysis longer than the tibia's diame–ter with short pointed dorsal apophysis a longer, slightly cur–ved, terminally incised median apophysis and a shorter roun–ded ventral apophysis; median apophysis reversed U–shaped, distal branch pointed and longer than basal branch; embolus gradually narrowing, with tip pointed, in antero–ventral view with distinct concavity.

  • Etymology. The species is dedicated to Roberto Pantaleoni, Director of CNR, Istituto per lo Studio degli Ecosistemi Sas–sari which supports and promotes faunistic studies in Sardinia.

  • Diagnosis. Zodarion pantaleonii spec. nov. belongs to the italicum group of Zodarion. Males differ from other species in this group by the distal branch of the median apophysis being twice as long as the basal branch, equal to slightly longer in all other species (Fig. 2i); females by the trapezoid median plate in the epigyne (Fig. 2j–k).

  • Description. Measurements: Male: Total length 2.0–2.4; prosoma 1.02–1.21 long, 0.71–0.90 wide. Female: Total length 2.7–2.8; prosoma 1.22–1.24 long, 0.84–0.86 wide. Colour (Fig. 2a–c): Prosoma yellowish brown with darkened eye region and greyish brown anastomosing striae; patellae pale yellowish, femora yellowish orange with pale base, other segments orange brown; opisthosoma sepia, venter for a small or greater part whitish.

    Eyes: AM = 1 (0.1); AL = 0.5; PM = 0.5; PL = 0.6; a = 0.5; b = 0.2; c = 1.3; d = 0.3; MOQ: AW = 1.1PW; L = 0.9 PW. Opisthosoma: With a of row of 10–22 bristles before the spinnerets, thicker and only slightly longer than the scatte–red hairs on the rest of the venter; in several specimens many bristles have been lost and in the two females only one and three bristles are present.

    Palp (Fig. 2d–g): Tibial apophysis elongated, slightly curved, longer than the tibia's diameter, narrow from its base, with small denticule at prolateral margin, terminally strongly poin–ted; median apophysis with distal branch longer than basal branch, strongly pointed terminally; embolus abruptly narro–wing in distal third, terminally strongly pointed. Epigyne (Fig. 2j–k): With relatively large trapezoid median plate, clear white, contrasting with the lateral and anterior bor–ders of the epigyne.

    Vulva (Fig. 2l–n): Spermathecae oval, separated by twice their diameter.

  • Distribution. Probably an endemic species of Sardinia (Italy).

    Zodarion pseudonigriceps Bosmans & Pantini spec. nov.
    (Fig. 3a–m)

  • Type material. Holotype ♂, 11 paratype ♂, 2 paratype ♀ from ITALy, Sardinia, Medio Campidano, Guspini, Montevecchio, Piccalinna 260 m a.s.l. (N39°33′24″ E8°34′06″), Mediterranean maquis, 5.–18.V.2009, pitfall traps, A. Sassu and M. Verdinelli leg. Deposition: ♂ holotype, 10 ♂, 1 ♂ paratype in MCSNB, 1 ♂, 1 ♀ paratype in CRB, 1 ♂ paratype in CNR.

  • Other material examined. ITALy: Sardinia, Medio Campidano, Arbus, Ingurtosu, Narcauli 120 m a.s.l. (N39°30′53″E8°29′33″), Mediterranean maquis, 1 ♀ 8.–22. IX.2009, pitfall traps, A. Sassu and M. Verdinelli leg. (MCSNB).

  • Etymology. The specific name refers to the close relationship to Zodarion nigriceps (Simon, 1873).

  • Diagnosis. Zodarion pseudonigriceps spec. nov. belongs to the italicum group. By the needle–like tibial apophysis (Fig. 3 f, g) the male is very close to Z. nigriceps, also occurring in Sar–dinia but this species has a bicoloured contrasting prosoma. Females are distinguished by the simple trapezoid plate in the epigyne (Fig. 3 j, k).

  • Description. Measurements: Male (n = 4): Total length 2.5–2.8; prosoma 1.02–1.45 long, 0.72–1.02 wide. Female (n = 3): Total length 3.0–3.2; prosoma 1.38–1.64 long, 1.02–1.17 wide.

    Colour (Fig. 3a–c): Prosoma yellowish brown, clypeus and two stripes converging towards the fovea grey; patellae pale yellowish, femora yellowish orange with pale base, other segments orange brown; opisthosoma dark sepia with large, elongate postero–dorsal whitish spot, venter whitish.

    Eyes large: AM = 1 (0.1); AL = 0.5; PM = 0.6; PL = 0.6; a = 0.5; b = d = 0.4; c = 1.8; MOQ: AW = 1.1 PW; L = 1.1 PW. Opisthosoma with a row of 14–15 bristles before spinnerets, more than twice as wide as normal hairs.

    Palp (Fig. 3d–i): All palps are expanded, so drawings show the bulb and the median apophysis in an abnormal position. Ti–bial apophysis needle–like as long as the tibia's diameter with subterminal bend forming an angle of 30° with base of the ti–bial apophyis; median apophysis relatively small, basal branch slightly shorter than the pointed distal branch; embolus with relatively broad base gradually narrowing with blunt tip.

    Epigyne (Fig. 3 j–k): With trapezoid median plate.

    Vulva (Fig. 3l–m): Spermathecae small and rounded, separa–ted by more than 5 times their diameter.

  • Distribution. Probably an endemic species of Sardinia (Italy).

All the material was collected by pitfall traps and deposited in DiSSPA.

  • Comments. Studying the Simon collection in the MNHN, the first author examined a tube labelled ‘Zodarion algiricum Alger AR1540’. It contained material of two closely related species. The first species (three males) is identical to the abun–dant material of Z. algiricum collected by the first author near Alger (see: Comparative material examined). In the same tube, 3 other males are identical to the material collected by P. Loverre in Puglia. It is well known that Simon used to mix material from different localities in the same tube, so it can be assumed that these males are from Sicily, mentioned as a locality of Z. algiricum by Simon (1870). Other localities mentioned for Z. algiricum (Morocco, South Spain) must also be doubted.

    The male palp and epigyne of Z. algiricum are quite diffe–rent from the palp and epigyne of Z. valentii, as can be seen in Fig. 4j–l. A detailed redescription of Z. algiricum is in prepa–ration. All existing figures of this species are erroneous.

  • Etymology. The specific name derives from the Latin name Valentius, referring to the village of Valenzano, in which the type specimens were collected.

  • Diagnosis. Zodarion valentii spec. nov. is closely related to Z. affine (Simon, 1870) from the south of Spain. Males differ by the longer tibial apophysis and the longer, oblique lateral groove in Z. affine (Fig. 4c–d versus 4g–h). Moreo–ver, the length of the whole tibia, including tibial apophy–sis, is only half the length of cymbium, whereas in Z. affine it reaches about three quarters. Females differ by the sausage–shaped postero–median depression in the epigyne of Z. valentii (Fig. 4e), nearly separated into two depressi–ons in Z. affine (Fig. 4i). The species is quite different from Z. algiricum (Fig. 4j–l).

  • Description. Measurements (n = 6): Male: Total length 2.2–3.0; prosoma 1.02–1.30 long 0.95–1.12 wide.

    Colour: Prosoma yellowish clypeus and two oblique stripes converging towards the fovea grey; chelicerae sternum and legs pale yellowish; opisthosoma dorsally dark grey poster–dorsally with three oval spots and one terminal whitish spot; venter also whitish.

    Eyes: AM = 1 (0.1); AL = 0.9; PM = 0.45; PL = 0.8; a = 0.8; b = 0.55; c = 235; d = 0.7; MOQ: AW = 0.80 PW; L = 0.95 PW. Palp (Figs 4a–d, 5b–d): Tibia twice as long as wide with large apophysis separated from the basal part by an oblique groove; distal part with anterior and posterior knob in ventral view re–curved in antero–lateral direction; median apophysis reversed U–shaped distal part more slender than basal part; embolus straight terminally rounded at retrolateral side accompanied by a shorter tooth.

    Epigyne (Figs 4e, 5e): With large, sausage–shaped postero–median depression.

    Vulva (Fig. 4f): Median depression with two elongate pockets at postero–median corners; spermathecae separated by about 3 times their diameter; copulation ducts complicated.

  • Phenology. Adults were collected all through the year, inclu–ding winter. Their number peaked in July.

  • Distribution. Italy (Puglia and Sicily).

Furthermore, the male palp figured by Weiss (2002) was ex–panded, which does not facilitate a correct identification. A recently collected male allows us to present new figures of the male palp. The tibial apophysis is elongated, more than twice as long as wide, gradually narrowing with median bend; tegulum bulging, with rounded boss; median apophysis with wide base, distally with terminal and prolateral tooth (Fig. 6a).

  • Comments. The species described as Zodarion sp. by Bos–mans (2009) appears to be the unknown female of Zodarion zorba. It is closely related to Z. blagoevi Bosmans, 2009 and Z. epirense Brignoli, 1984 and differs by the trapezoid median plate in the epigyne, surrounded by a much larger pale area. The species was recently also cited from Hungary (Szinetár et al. 2015).

  • Distribution. This species was described from the Oros Aro–ania, province Achaia in the Peloponnisos. Here it is cited in large numbers on the Oros Mainalo in the nearby province Arkadia, but also much more to the north in Makedonia and Thessalia.
