Haplodrassus eunis Chamberlin 1922


Haplodrassus eunis Chamberlin 1922  

Material examined.— Canada: Québec: Parc des Grands Jardins, Lac Mignard [47 ° 41 ’N, 70 ° 51 ’W] 13.– 21.vi. 2000, pitfall, 3 ɗ 3 Ψ, M. Larrivée ( CNC).

Diagnosis. Males are distinguished from other Haplodrassus   by a slender terminal apophysis bifid distally, and females by the V­shaped notch located between the sinuous lateral sclerites ( Paquin & Dupérré 2003: fig. 681).

Distribution.— Widespread species known from Alaska to Québec (present records), south to California, Arizona and New Mexico ( Platnick & Shadab 1975, Platnick & Dondale 1992).

Remark.— The present record confirms the occurrence of H. eunis   in Québec, which was suspected by Paquin & Dupérré (2003, see figs 679–681). This constitutes an important range extension of 950 km to the East for the species.
