  • Male Schizocosa ocreata wolf spiders court females with synchronous visual and seismic displays. We tested whether male S. ocreata modify their courtship in relation to light environment, and associated utility of the visual components. Males were generally more active and more likely to perform the major courtship element (‘jerky tapping’) when in the light. One courtship element (‘arching’) was only observed in the light while another (‘vertical leg-extend’) was only observed in the dark… CONTINUE READING
