Zoogeographical Analysis of Araneophauna of Steppous Plots of the Ulyanovsk Region with Data on Area Expansing of Several Species

Abstract

Areal types are analyzed for spiders of stepped plots of the Ulyanovsk Region. Most of them belong to the Palaearctic ones (229 species). Trans-palaearctic (63 species), western-centralpalaearctic (50) and west palaearctic (40) areas are dominant. European eras are dominant among European-Siberian type, and west-central-Mediterranean dominate among the Mediterranean type. Heterotrichoncus pusillus (Miller, 1958) and Syedra apetlonensis Wunderlich, 1992 are noted for Russia for the first time; Alopecosa psammophila Buchar, 2001 is for the first time found from the European Russia. The following species are firstly noted from the (Middle) Volga Region: Enoplognatha serratosignata (L. Koch 1879), Lasaeola prona (Menge, 1868), Aculepeira armida (Audouin, 1826), Gnaphosa mongolica Simon, 1895, Pisaura novicia (L. Koch, 1878), Caspicosa manytchensis Ponomarev, 2007, Xysticus marmoratus Thorell, 1875, Agelena orientalis C. L. Koch, 1837, Mecynargus foveatus (Dahl, 1912), Zelotes potanini Schenkel, 1963 and Heriaeus melloteei Simon, 1886 whereas Ipa terrena (L. Koch, 1879), Trichoncoides striganovae Tanasevitch et Piterkina, 2012, Erigonoplus jarmilae (Miller, 1943) and Improphantes geniculatus (Kulczyсski, 1898) are listed for the first time from the Ulyanovsk Region.
