The ladybird spider is one of the UK’s most endangered spiders. In fact, it was actually thought to be extinct in Britain for over 70 years due to loss of habitat. It was rediscovered in 1980 when a single colony of just 7 individuals was discovered in Dorset. Thanks to a conservation effort by ‘Back from the Brink’ there are now nearly 1000 individuals in 14 populations. The male ladybird spider has the bright ladybird colouring during the mating season while the female is jet-black. The females are larger than the males, 10-16mm compared to 6-9mm and mainly spend their time underground in silk-lined burrows.
