The species is widespread in much of Britain. It is widespread in north-western and central Europe.
Habitat and ecology
The spider occurs in grass, moss and detritus in a wide range of habitats, including grasslands, heathland, bog, hedgerows, wasteland and allotments, but perhaps especially in improved and disturbed grasslands and other places with areas of open ground, often in taller grass than C. concinna. It is scarce on heathland. Adults of both sexes are recorded mainly in the autumn, winter and early spring, females persisting later, occasionally to late summer.
