Steibl, S; Ballarin, F; Nadolny, AA; Laforsch, C: First record of a wolf spider, Draposa lyrivulva (Bösenberg & Strand 1906) (Araneae: Lycosidae), from the Maldivian Islands, Indian Ocean, Acta Arachnologica, 69(2), 61-65 (2020), online: 2020-12-20
Abstract:
We report the first record of the wolf spider Draposa lyrivulva (Bösenberg & Strand 1906) outside its known distribution in Pakistan, India, and the island of Sri Lanka on the remote tropical islands of the Maldives. It is the first species report of any Lycosidae from these islands. As this remote archipelago in the Indian Ocean lies about 500 km off the Indian subcontinent and comprises more than 1100 islands, the finding of D. lyrivulva as a common species there suggests that this spider could have colonized the islands either via aerial dispersal, rafting, or has been introduced by humans.
