Species text
Haplodrassus silvestris has been recorded from the south coast of England to Perthshire, but is widely scattered except in the south-east. It is local and apparently never numerous. The spider is found in woodland, amongst litter, under bark, stones, etc. In Essex it appears to be confined to woodlands on sandy soils, occurring in chestnut coppice or other broad-leaved woodland, or nearby heathland and grassland areas. It is important to maintain open areas in woodland through coppicing and to retain dead wood (Harvey et al., 2002). References
