Vidya

Familia: Lycosidae

Genus: Trochosa

Female, ± 10 mm

 

A mother wolf-spider with her babies. She was carrying the spiderlings on her back on a sidewalk exposed to the sun, next to a highly frequented road. She lost some of the spiderlings on her way and let them alone, maybe they were big enough to survive on their own.
