Comments. This species, 11 mm long, was described based on the holotype female from Tangier ( Morocco) (Roew- er 1960a). Habitus and epigyne figures are present with the description. The carapace is uniformly coloured (a character unknown in Trochosa  ), lacking a pair of longitudinal stripes (present in all Trochosa  ) and the epigyne has a large fovea and lacks the distinct, deep anterior hoods characteristic of Trochosa  . The shape of the epigyne is similar to that of Arctosa villica ( Lucas, 1846)  as illustrated in Nentwig et al. (2020) and Oger (2020), and A. villica  is known from Morocco. Given the patternless carapace, the shape of the epigyne and the occurrence in Morocco, it is most likely that the two species names could be synonymous. Because of the similarity of Arctosa villica  and Trochosa tangerana  , we transfer the latter species to Arctosa  .
