Essex Red Data List comment
Nationally important populations in Essex

Species text
Hypomma fulvum occurs mainly in East Anglia and the extreme south-east of England. Coastal Essex is a national stronghold for H. fulvum, where it is relatively frequent in brackish Phragmites near the coast. The spider occurs most frequently in fens and marshes, on Phragmites or in the litter beneath, sometimes in Cladium marshes. In Essex, it has been collected mainly in Phragmites marsh in borrowdykes, but also grazing marsh grassland, in saltmarshes and on the landward side of a sea wall in herb rich grassland. References
