Clubiona comta (C.L.Koch, 1839)
Widespread and common in the UK and surely a much under-recorded Spider in Nottinghamshire. Clubiona comta is typically found on the foliage of trees and bushes and is probably best found by beating. The juvenile/sub-adult shown in the lower two photographs, was disturbed from underneath Heather growing on a steep bank at Rainworth Heath in May 2016.
