Thanks Alan

That's interesting to know. I'm just starting to get into spiders, but wolf spiders seem like a tricky group!

Yes,

wolf spiders can be tricky because there are lots of similar species. For most, it needs examination under the microscope to ID them. Trochosa species are slightly bigger than most Pardosa species and they have two dark lines within the light central band on the cephalothorax.
