Species text

Distribution
The species is widespread but scattered in England with very few records from Wales and Scotland. It is widespread in north-western and central Europe.

Habitat and ecology
T. striata occurs in reed-beds in standing water, usually at the edge of lakes where it spins an orb web among reeds. Adults are found from May to August, mainly in June and July.

Status
The species is apparently very local, but probably not as scarce as the records suggest, because of its inaccessible habitat.

Threats
As it occurs in reed-beds in open water, rather than in fens, there is probably little threat.
