Comments. This species was described based on several females collected in Fezzan (Southwestern Libya). Caporiacco indicated its size as 7 mm (3 mm carapace and 4.1 mm abdomen) in length. Judging from the shape of the epigyne given in Caporiacco (1936) and Roewer (1960a), it is neither Pirata  nor Trochosa  but is most similar to Alopecosa simoni ( Thorell, 1872)  and A. pentheri ( Nosek, 1905)  , members of the A. cursor  -group (see Marusik et al. 2018; Nentwig et al. 2020) and because of this similarity, we transfer this species to Alopecosa  .
