Species text

Distribution
S. florentina is restricted to southern Britain. The spider is steadily increasing in numbers and distribution (P. Merrett, pers. comm.). It is widespread in western Europe as far north as Denmark, but is not recorded from Ireland.

Habitat and ecology
S. florentina has been recorded from holes in walls and under stones, often near ports and in market towns. It is a large species, the adults with distinctive iridescent green on the chelicerae visible at the entrance to the tubular retreat. Adults occur in summer and autumn.

Status
Scarce, but may be abundant at some sites and seems to be increasing.
