Species text

The species is widespread in parts of southern Britain, but very scattered in large areas of the south as well as north of Yorkshire. It is widespread in north-western and central Europe.

Habitat and ecology
A ground active spider associated with wetlands, particularly fens, bogs and coastal habitats such as saline grassland and marsh. Females attach their white egg-sacs to leaves and other vegetation which are then rolled and sealed with more silk. Once complete, these egg-sacs can normally be found guarded by the female. Adults of both sexes have been found between March and November, but mainly from late spring to mid-summer and in the autumn.

Local, but the spider may be common in fens and marshes.
