oops the photo :) 147 Alopecos pulverulenta - a good group to know amongst the wolfies as the males are field identifiable and there is a very common one, a not so common one, a rare one and a ******* rare (maybe extinct) one...

148 Pardosa proxima a rather dark little wolf spider close to P.hortensis - Pardosa are the opposite of the Alopecosa in terms of field id - too much individual variation
