Aulonia kratochvili Dunin, Buchar & Absolon, 1986  ( Figures 3a ‒cView Figure 3)

Aulonia kratochvili Dunin et al., 1986: 28  , f. 1‒7 (♂♀); Kronestedt 1997: 77, f. 1‒2 (♂). Material (only selected localities are shown)  . ISRAEL: Eastern Galilee: Lake Hula, 8.iv.2010 (L. Friedman & C. Drees) – 6♂ ( TAU)  ; Jordan Valley: 1.iv.1943 (A. Shulov) – 1♀ ( TAU)  ; Central Coastal Plain: Berekhat Ya’ar , 4.iv.2010 (L. Friedman & C. Drees) – 11♂ 7♀ ( TAU)  ; Nahal Poleg (32°15.5’N 34°50.3’E), 18.iii.2013 – 1♀ ( TAUGoogleMaps  ). Comments. This species was previously known from Greece to western Turkmenistan ( Mikhailov 2013; WSC 2015). It is very easily distinguished from other lycosid genera in Israel because of the characteristic habitus, pattern, the huge tegular apophysis of the males ( Figs 3View Figure 3 a-b) and the very hairy epigyne lacking fovea ( Fig. 3cView Figure 3). Aulonia kratochvili  was not previously reported from Israel. The record from Nahal Poleg is the southernmost in the entire range.
