Strigamia crassipes (C.L. Koch, 1835)

Status

GB IUCN status: Least Concern

ID Difficulty

3

Identification

As other Strigamia species it has a characteristic ’red’ colour and a prominent tooth at the base of the pioson claw, but its 49-53 leg pairs distiguish it from the other inland species S. acuminata.
 
This species is very similar in appearance to coastal S. maritima, but differing in subtle morphological characters.
