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.
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.
