Clubiona brevipes (Blackwall, 1841)
A reasonable widespread species in Nottinghamshire, probably only restricted through spiders being poorly recorded among the majority of local naturalists. Clubiona brevipes is a spider of trees and bushes, and is probably best found by beating foliage. We have few records, but all have come from beating the foliage of Ivy growing on Sycamore.
