The species is locally distributed in England with few records in Wales and Scotland. In Essex it is also a Very local spider, but may be numerous where it occurs. Proximity to water seems to be a necessity for this species. Its natural habitat appears to be tree trunks adjacent to water, but it is usually found on fences and bridges. Buildings near the water are also favoured but it is not often found on vegetation. References
