Spiders to be found in and around Torphins Wood, page 3, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Torphins is a village in upper Deeside, Aberdeenshire Scotland. There is nothing particularly special about the wood, it is a mixed species coniferous/deciduous wood, so things found there can probably be found in many other Scottish, British or even European woods. For more information on Torphins itself and the human population there go to Torphins.org.
Found on vegetation. The female secures her egg sac under a leaf she has bent and held in place by silk.
The colouration is variable, but there are always black spots.
