Euophrys herbigrada  (SALTICIDAE)

Euophrys herbigrada

This jumping spider is similar in appearance to Euophrys frontalis but very much more rare, with its distribution limited to a few coastal locations on the south coast of England. It favours short coastal grassland and has been found on dry, sunny slopes or cliff tops, and also under stones. Females are between 3 and 4 mm in length, while the males are around 2.5mm. Currently only a male specimen has been available for imaging for this website.
