spider with a western UK distribution. Females make a
tube web retreat under logs or fallen bark in woodlands.
This is a fairly large spider, at first giving the
impression of one of the Tegenarias, but Coelotes
are more stockily built with shorter legs and less
inclined to run when disturbed. This female was found
under a piece of fallen bark in the Birklands West and
Ollerton Corner SSSI in April 2012, but they have been
found to be common under bark or logs near Market Warsop
in May 2012.
