Old record for Epping Forest and dubious record from Colchester area

Species text
The spider is common in some places, but rather local. It is almost confined to central-southern and south-eastern England, occurring mainly on old heathland in damp areas, sometimes in bog, often with some scrub present, but sometimes on dry heathland and other similar low shrubby vegetation. Threats include the loss of heathland to agriculture, afforestation and development. References
