Advertisement First of all, thanks to a very respected Greek scorpionologist for the correct common name!! its Eresus niger ignicomis if im not mistaken (??? experts???) it scared the cr*p out of me when i first found it, as ive been looking in the same area for other insects and stuff for the past 10 years, and this is the first time i have ever seen one!! here is the pic: it was an angry little bastard...... its the size of a Lycosa sp, one of the big ones, so i didnt want those little fangs in my skin it was caught in Southern Corsica in a barren field full of goats, in the same habitat as Latrodectus tredecimgutattus and loads of crab spider species, big ones. i also managed to pillage her nest and get about 20-30 babies (less than half.........) as they would probably die anyway........ and before i get eaten by the spider conservationists, i put her right back where i found her!
