Eresus moravicus is a spider species in the family Eresidae found in AustriaHungaryCzechiaSerbiaSlovakia , and Albania.[1] Being found mainly in rocky steppes. It is named after the eastern part of the Czech Republic, Moravia, which is where the type species was found. E. moravicus is one of the three species into which Eresus cinnaberinus or Eresus niger has been divided.[2]

Covering most of the entire form of the cheliceral segments. They also have a less lobed spermathecaE. ignicomis is larger and the coverage of orange hairs is less consistent, usually just spotting. E. tricolor differ by the presence of white spots on the opisthosoma.[2]
