Essex Red Data List comment
Shell shingle on east coast.

Species text
The east coast populations of Pseudeuophrys obsoleta were originally described as Euophrys browningi and considered to be long isolated and separate to the mid-European E. obsoleta (Locket, Millidge & Merrett 1974). However subsequent opinion considers the populations to be conspecific. Although proposed as a UKBAP species, it was eventually omitted from the list (Anon 1999) even as a Species Statement, possibly in error. It was added to the UKBAP as a priority species in the recent review. Most recent records are from Essex, where the spider has been found on shingle and shell shingle between Walton Naze and Foulness. References
