  • Predation on terrestrial molluscs by spiders is a largely unknown behaviour, with few records all over the world and virtually no studies dealing with the subject. The spider Cteniza sauvagesi (Rossi, 1788) (Araneae: Ctenizidae) is a large trapdoor species widespread in Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy); its diet is usually based upon terrestrial invertebrates active on the ground at night, such as beetles and isopods. Here we record for the first time its predation upon the slug Milax sp. Gray, 1855 (Mollusca: Milacidae), based on one fortuitous observation in the field of an adult female feeding on a slug inside her burrow and some further malacophagy observations at night by other specimens.
