Abstract in another language

We report the first record of the wolf spider <I>Draposa lyrivulva</I> (Bösenberg & Strand 1906) outside its known distribution in Pakistan, India and the island of Sri Lanka on the remote tropical islands of the Maldives. It is the first species report of any Lycosidae from these islands. As this remote archipelago in the Indian Ocean lies about 500 km off the Indian subcontinent and comprises more than 1100 islands, the finding of <I>D. lyrivulva</I> as a common species there suggests that this spider could have colonized the islands either via aerial dispersal, rafting or has been introduced by humans.
