Species text
This wolf spider is widespread in Wales and on southern heathland, but very scattered elsewhere and absent from much of central and northern Britain. It is associated with wet heathland, dune slacks, fenland and other wet marshy places (Harvey et al. 2002) but in Essex is almost exclusively found in seasonally wet brackish locations including brackish ditches and saline hollows behind the seawall.
