Can you give a proper site

Can you give a proper site name for where you found it, please, as the record could be significant. Unles you really did find it by the A1303.

The other Atypus options are just old names for A affinis. See -

A very nice find. Should be passed onto the Spider Recording Scheme if possible.

Devil's Dyke is only a few miles from me and so I went there on Saturday. I thought it unlikely that I'd see Atypus too but I did find one, on the top of the dyke. I've also uploaded a pic on to its SRS page. I'll email the Cambs Wildlife Trust, partly because they're doing a lot of conservation work on that section of the dyke.

glad that the more people recording the better, might mean the site gets better protection !.
