Wolf Spiders (Lycosidae) belong to the most common spiders in Australia and world-wide. I have been working on Australian Lycosidae for over a decade now and established a taxonomic framework for this diverse group of spiders. Wolf spiders can be recognised by their characteristic eye arrangement (three rows: 4 small eyes and two pairs of large eyes in almost a square pattern on the cephalothorax). Females carry their eggsacs fixed to their spinnerets. After the spiderlings hatch, their mother will carry them around on her abdomen. Find a list of my publications on wolf spiders on my AAS homepage (many can be downloaded from there).
