Species text
This wolf spider is widely distributed but scattered in much of Britain. It is rare in the agricultural lowlands of southern England e.g. in Leicestershire (Crocker & Daws 1996) and Essex (Harvey 2000), and very rare in most of the north of Britain. A. barbipes occurs on heathlands and old and unimproved grasslands, especially where there are areas of sparsely vegetated ground, short turf and lichen heath. References
