Species text
The spider has only been recorded from 11 post-1979 ten km squares nationally, and is likely to be assigned an IUCN category of Vulnerable in a forthcoming spider status review. It occurs amongst tide litter and sparse vegetation and shingle on the seashore, but most populations are very localised and public pressure can disturb the habitat by trampling, and the removal of strandline debris on beaches used for recreation would pose a threat to this and other similar invertebrate species (Harvey et al. 2002). The spider has been found on various occasions in suitable habitat at a few locations on the Essex coast. References
