Drassodes lapidosus (Walckenaer, 1802)
Drassodes lapidosus is one of three very similar species and virtually indistinguishable from each other with proper examination. All are nocturnal hunters, but can be found during the day in their silk cells under stones, rubble or logs etc. This Drassodes lapidosus, was found at the base of a grass tussock on Sherwood Heath SSSI in early October 2017. There are few Nottinghamshire records.
