Distribution

Sibiric-European species ( Isaia et al. 2007). It is distributed in Europe, from the Mediterranean area to Central Asia ( World Spider Catalog 2020). It can be found in mainland Italy, Sardinia and Sicily ( Pantini and Isaia 2019).

Notes

It is common to find it in low vegetation, on bushes and in the undergrowth. The species prefers warm, dry conditions, provided by open and sparsely-vegetated habitats, such as ruderal habitats, dunes and vegetated pebbles. Adults of both sexes are found mainly in May and June, but females can sometimes survive until autumn ( Harvey et al. 2002). It is a night stalker ( Isaia et al. 2007).
