Comments. Trochosa impercussa  was described based on the holotype female from Sabzawaran City (=Jiroft, 28°40’13.080”N 57°44’12.840”E). The holotype studied exhibited no differences from Arctosa tbilisiensis  , a species known from Greece to Azerbaijan and south to Iran. This species is thoroughly described by Alderweireldt (2002). The record from Jiroft ( Iran) is the southeasternmost in the range. Written description, illustration of habitus and epigyne illustrations of Trochosula afghana Roewer, 1960  fit well with those in A. tbilisiensis  , and therefore the two names are to be synonymized with A. tbilisiensis  .
