Diplostyla concolor (Wider, 1834)
A small spider, with a reasonably widespread distribution in the county. With most Arachnid recording work generally undertaken in the Sherwood Forest area, there have been a number of records since it was first discovered there in 1978. We have records of a female (below left) at Budby South Forest in early April 2010 and a male (below right) at Sherwood Forest CP in April 2020.
