Pahoroides confusa Fitzgerald & Sirvid

Confused Pahoroides Spider (Pahoroides confusa)

This species, from New Zealand’s North Island, was described in the year 2011.

The species epithet refers to the inclusion of this species in the original description of another species, the Whangarei Pahoroides Spider (Pahoroides whangarei Forster).

Both species share the same habitat, whereby the Confused Pahoroides Spider seems to require more moisture conditions than the other species.
