Species text
This pirate spider is widespread but very locally distributed in England south-east of a line from the Severn to the Wash. It is an uncommon species, and never numerous. It is found mainly on mature heathland on tall heather and gorse. It searches out the webs of other spiders and invades them in order to feed on the rightful occupants. It has also been recorded from younger stages of heathland succession as well as a number of other habitats including fens and buildings. References
