Textrix denticulata (Olivier, 1789)
An attractively marked spider which is generally widespread across much of the UK, though becomes more scarce towards the south-east UK. Textrix denticulata has been recorded on numerous occasions from the Sherwood Forest area where its small sheet web with retreat can be found against loose bark, tree trunks and certain fence posts. It occasionally turns up in other parts of Nottinghamshire, but is unusual when it does.
