Species text
This spider has a widespread but patchy distribution in southern England and south Wales, occurring on heathland and in open woodland. It may be numerous in parts of its range but inexplicably rare in other areas. In Essex this species has been incresasing its distribution and frequency in the past few years and is now common in many parts of the county where it was previously absent. Previously it was mainly restricted to a small central area in the county between Danbury and Tiptree Heath, where it occurs in relic heathland habitats. It had never been recorded in the Epping Forest area, despite many searches in suitable locations. References
