Pardosa prativaga (L. Koch, 1870)
Pardosa prativaga is extremely similar and largely indistinguishable without close examination from most other Pardosa species, but probably widespread over much of the county. Most records are from the northern-half of Nottinghamshire and it is often recorded near water. It does occur at a range of sites, but the majority of records come from sites in the River Idle and Trent Valleys.
