Dismodicus bifrons (Blackwall, 1841)
A tiny, but common spider with a Nottinghamshire distribution that is decidedly westerly, although this may be due to recorder bias. Dismodicus bifrons is known to be one of our most common ballooning species. It constructs a small sheet web, low down in vegetation and is found in a range of habitats, most notably in grassy, overgrown areas.
