Tetragnatha striata (L. Koch, 1892) 
Patchily distributed in the UK with distinct clusters of records, most especially in a number of Midlands counties The superb recording work of Bob Merritt a number of years ago, probably means that Nottinghamshire has the best idea of this spider's distribution than any other UK county. It is widespread and probably to be found at many ponds or lakes with areas of Phragmites, Iris or similar long-leaved waterside vegetation. The female and eggsac illustrated below, was found within easy reach of the bank at Wellow Dam in late June 2021.
