Agyneta saxatilis (Blackwall, 1844)
Few records from Nottinghamshire, but not surprising considering the present lack of interest in our Arachnid fauna. The lack of interest is generally even more so with these small Lyniphids, which are difficult to identify and really requires a specimen under the microscope. Agyneta saxatilis is a species of a wide variety of habitats, where it lives amongst leaf litter and vegetation close to the ground layer.
