Dilta Hibernica, Womersley 1930

This is thought to be the most widespread of the Dilta species in the British Isles, found in both coastal and inland sites. Males can be seperated from other Dilta species by the spines on the second segment of the labial palp. Females are seperable from Dilta Saxicola and Dilta Littoralis by the number of segments in the gonapophyses, but determination from female Dilta Chateri is not yet known.
