The species has a widespread but patchy distribution in much of Britain. It is widespread in north-western and central Europe.
Habitat and ecology
This spider can be found on stony ground, in rocky crevices, on low vegetation, under bark, and on low bushes, inland and by the sea. It also occurs on the hills of northern England and in Scotland it is equally common in houses. In south-eastern England there are records from sparsely vegetated rail ballast at disused railway sites. Both sexes are mainly found from early to mid-summer but females can be found at most times of the year and males have also been recorded in September.
Common in the north. However in the south of England it is much more restricted and in the south-east it is only occasionally encountered.
