Note: The photo shown on this page is of a South Queensland lycosid that may not have been a mature specimen but that has surface markings similar to those
of the Western Australian species shown on on the internet by Dr. Volker Framenau as being an unidentified species probably related to Lycosa ariadne. On this
basis this Queensland species may also be related to Lycosa ariadne.
