Lycosa tarentula is a circum-Mediterranean wolf spider that typically lives in a burrow in which the superior part is delimited by little twigs held together by silk (Ortega-Escobar 1986).
The visual system of the lycosid spider Lycosa tarentula has been studied both from the behavioral (orientation to nest: Ortega-Escobar & Munoz-Cuevas 1999; Ortega-Escobar 2002a; locomotor activity rhythms: Ortega-Escobar 2002b; Ortega-Escobar et al.
Lycosa tarentula would achieve PI by using proprioceptive and visual information gathered through the anterior lateral eyes (ALEs), which have ventral visual fields whose images change very little when the animal walks in comparison with the images through the anterior median (AMEs), posterior median (PMEs) or posterior lateral eyes (PLEs), which move quickly, given their visual fields.
