Abstract

Artoriopsis is an Australian genus of wolf spiders (Lycosidae) that includes Artoriopsis expolita (L. Koch, 1877) and six other species. In 2010, a male specimen of A. expolita was caught in a pitfall trap at Shakespear Regional Park, which is at the tip of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula in the Auckland Region. The pitfall trap was part of an invertebrate survey by the Auckland Council.
