Stenichnus collaris (Müller, P.W.J. & Kunze, 1822)     
This is another very small species, but one which will often turn up in leaf litter samples, only to be disregarded due to it's extremely small size and the potential identification difficulties that come with it. Stenichnus collaris is known from a number of sites including Clumber Park, Sherwood Heath, Treswell Wood and Eakring, all of which are in the northern-half of Nottinghamshire. But despite that, there seems little doubt that it occurs more widely than the distribution map would suggest.
