Cis bilamellatus (Wood, 1884)
Established and quite common in Nottinghamshire for many years now, Cis bilamellatus (1.5mm long) is the UK's only non-native Ciid. It first arrived as long ago as 1884 and now has a range covering most parts of the UK. Nottinghamshire records are centred around Sherwood Forest, which may be expected as Cis bilamellatus is usually found on the common fungus Piptoporus betulinus.
