Essex Red Data List comment
In Essex a unique saltmarsh form is the only one recorded

Species text
This species is a scarce spider of heathland, but in Essex an apparently uniquely camouflaged colour form occurs on Sea Purslane and Shrubby Seablite in saltmarsh, and the heathland form is unknown. This saltmarsh form has been recorded at various points around the Essex coast, but there are no reports of the species in a similar habitat or of such a distinctive colour variety elsewhere in Britain, although these may also occur on the Suffolk coast.
