( Figs. 2DView Fig, 3View Fig A–B, 4A–B, 5A–B, 6D, G–H, 8A–E, 15A)

Agelena livida Simon 1875: 112  , pl. 6, fig. 10 (♂ ♀).

Agelena livida: Kulczyński 1911: 44  , pl. 2, figs. 54, 56 (♂ ♀). Agelena livida: Brignoli 1977: 14  , figs. 3–4 (♀).

Agelena livida: de Blauwe 1980: 23  , figs. 36–41 (♂ ♀). Agelescape livida: Levy 1996: 89  , figs. 14–17 (♂ ♀).

Material examined: ISRAEL: 3♀ ( SMNH), 0.4 km S Latrun Monastery , 31°50′N 34°59′E, 220 m, 29 October 2011 (S. L. Zonstein)GoogleMaps  ; 1♀ ( SMNH), Adulam , 20 May 2008 (O. Skutelsky)  ; 13♂ ( SMNH, tentative identification as there are no females in the collection), Upper Galilee , N slope of Mt Meron, Meron Field School, 900 m, 33°01′N 35°23.5′E, 25 May 2013 (S. L. Zonstein)GoogleMaps  .

Diagnosis: Females differ from those of A. afFnis by the trapezoidal scape widening posteriorly ( v. rounded  ) and the C-shaped anterior loop (Ac) of the copulatory duct (v. Ushaped) (cf. Figs. 8View Fig A–D and 8F–G). Males of the two species are indistinguishable ( Levy 1996).

Description: See Levy (1996) and de Blauwe (1980). This species exhibits extreme size variation in both sexes, even within individuals from the same population ( Fig. 2DView Fig).

Distribution: Mediterranean, from Spain to Israel, although unreported between Spain and Albania ( Helsdingen 2020) ( Fig. 15AView Fig).
