The state of Florida has a complex biogeography which is the product of past sea level changes and associated ocean currents creating numerous inland sand ridge systems which are home to a unique biota adapted to the seasonally dry conditions found on these sandy uplands. Among these xeric-adapted taxa is a suite of wolf spider species in the genus Geolycosa. Geolycosa wolf spiders are habitat specialists and poor dispersers, and many taxa have ranges restricted to specific ridge systems. We… CONTINUE READING
