Species text
The species is confined to the southern half of Britain, and is especially frequent in parts of south-east England. The spider is found on tall heather, brambles, bushes and the lower branches of trees, usually in sheltered shady places and among scrub on cliffs by the coast. It occurs at the edge of clearings or rides in broad-leaved or mixed woodland, in old hedgerows, green lanes, scrub and sometimes gardens. The spider is relatively frequent in southern and eastern Essex in scrub and woodland edge habitat. It has been recorded in 118 post-1979 10km squares (Harvey et al., 2002) and its status will be downgraded in a forthcoming status review. References
