Species text
Synageles venator is almost confined to a few locations on the coasts of southern England and South Wales, but also recorded from Yaxley and Woodwalton Fens, Huntingdonshire, two old brick pits in the Peterborough area (one subsequently developed for housing) and a single male from an old pulverised fly ash (PFA) lagoon site in South Essex, now built on (Harvey, et al., 2002). A single female was collected by C.W. Plant from a brownfield site in Dagenham in 2006, a few kilometers to the east of the Jenkins Lane site. The spider occurs in sand dunes on the coast, usually low down among marram, and among similar tussocky vegetation in fens. More recently it has been found in two old brick-pits, in one case on a fairly steep bank with Phragmites and partial vegetation cover near the margin of a pool and in traps set in weathered PFA 'dune' with nearby areas of Phragmites and 'fen' vegetation. The spider is an ant-mimic, usually found in association with ants. It occurred at the Jenkins Lane site on three separate occasions, in each case beaten from low scrub. It is unclear what the spider's habitat requirements are at this site, but it is clearly well established. References
