Species text
This is a generally uncommon spider, with a scattered distribution in Britain as far north as central Scotland, but is absent from some large areas of the country. In a status review in preparation the species is provisionally accorded Scarce B status. In Essex the spider is scarce, with records from heathy woodlands across the centre of the county, and with several records to the south. The orb webs of this spider are most often found on evergreen trees and shrubs in scrub or old woodland. References
