Diaea dorsata (Fabricius, 1777)
A Spider of trees and bushes, mainly confined to the south of the UK. Diaea dorsata has been recorded many times in Nottinghamshire and beating foliage the foliage of Yew (Taxus baccata) growing in deciduous woodland, is by far the most effective method of finding this species. We have recent records from near Bothamsall in 2015 and both Thoresby Park and Hannah Park near Worksop in 2017.
