Essex Red Data List comment
Only known in the county from Colne Point and Shoebury Old Ranges.

Species text
The species is confined to England and Wales, mostly on the coast, where it is infrequent and local. It is assigned pScarce A in a forthcoming spider status review. S. saltator occurs in sandy places, mainly on coastal sand dunes on open sand in sunshine, where it is well camouflaged and can leap considerable distances. It is sometimes found on sandy heaths inland, where it tends to live in open sandy areas (Harvey et al. 2002). In Essex it has only been recorded from Colne Point and relic sand dune at Shoebury Old Ranges. References
