|A common 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.|
