The lifespan of Y. arenarius is about 720 days for males and 750 days for females (maximum 770 days), which makes it the longest lived salticid reported from natural conditions. The juvenile spiders emerge at the beginning of June and mature not before the following August. They mate in autumn and hibernate for the second time. For most of the year two cohorts coexist, and at the beginning of June three cohorts can be found simultaneously. The life cycle suggests that in the studied areas there are two groups of individuals, the first of which produces young in odd years, while the other group reproduces in even years. The spider lifespan and phenology suggest no or limited gene flow between the groups.
